"Millions of individual unrelated efforts will not add up to 
the future that invites our profession. This is no time for 
engineers to wrap themselves in the mantle of isolation; let 
as get together and be about our common business." 

— the late Dr. W. E. Wickenden in "The Second Mile. 

Those who are truly professional engineers appreciate that 
the answer to Dr. Wickenden's ringing challenge lies with 
the Engineering Institute of Canada. The important issues 
do not relate to individual branches of the profession nor to 
separate provinces or areas of Canada. They are national 
and professional issues which can be met only through the 
all-inclusive national and professional organization of

Association of Professional Engineers 

Province of Ontario 


rpHE ASSOCIATION of Professional Engineers of the Province of Ontario 
is constituted by the Legislature of the Province of Ontario to 
govern the practice of professional engineering in this Province. In 
brief, no person is permitted to practice professional engineering or term 
himself an "engineer" (with certain exemptions as defined in the Act) 
unless he is a registered Member or Licensee of the Association. 

Registration can be obtained by graduates of the faculty of Applied 
Science and Engineering, University of Toronto, holding the Degree of 
Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering, as soon as they are able to 
submit evidence of satisfactory practical experience. 

Provision is made in the Act that an undergraduate may be recorded 
with the Association while attending University, thereafter, submitting 
annually information as to his standing and additional engineering exper- 
ience. When he has acquired the necessary practical experience, he may 
then apply for final registration, which gives him the right to call himself 
a Professional Engineer and to practice Professional Engineering. With the 
exception of persons exempted from the operation of the Act no one may 
use the title, "Professional Engineer" or "Engineer," or any title simliar 
thereto unless he is a Member or Licensee of the Association. 

A recorded undergraduate receives the publications of the Associ- 
ation and all reports and information that is distributed. He receives a 
a card that may serve as an introduction to prospective employers. 

The Association is keenly interested in the welfare of the young 
engineer and is awarding five Scholarships each year (totalling $675) to 
students in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the 
University of Toronto. 

Any further information desired may be obtained from the Registrar 
of the Association.

HPHE past year has been an era of great changes down at the Red Schoolhouse: 
-* the average age of a Varsity Engineer dropped from forty-seven to thirty- 
five, the School Cannon 1950 made its noisy debut, and all Schoolmen, under a 
new Dean, and using new lecture halls and laboratories, were again united in 

Revision and improvement have been the by-words of 5T0, and these basic 
ideas, together with a number of inspirations along editorial lines, have formed 
the policy behind this issue. We on the staff of "Transactions" have attempted 
to bring you something new, something a little more up-to-date, find by April. 

From a business standpoint, there is much yet to be dene,' but the trail 
blazed this year should make the advertising situation next fall a little sunnier. 

The publication of the 1950 edition has required a considerable amount of 
effort by a great number of people. To all of these — the presidents, the chair- 
men, the members of executives and committees, the class reps, the team man- 
agers — we wish to express our appreciation for the wonderful co-operation 
that we have received. 

To the other persons who are always "joed" but never mentioned, especially 
these who turned out for the group pictures and still managed to smile, to Joe 
Forbes down at the "Miner," and to Gerry, Barb, and Marion, in the stores, 
"Thanks a million." 

We haven't worked in vain if this edition of "Transactions and Yearbook" is 
to you, "Skule — 5T0." 

BANKING IN 7^(2770/1/ 

CANADA'S swift rise to a first-rank manufacturing nation has 
been materially aided by "Banking in fiction." Ever since its 
establishment in 1867 The Canadian Bank of Commerce has played 
a proud part in this magnificent record of progress. 

Every branch of the engineering profession has recourse to 
banking for services which provide the financing of supplies, the 
cashing of payrolls and numerous day-to-day requirements. This 
is truly a case of "Banking in Action".

"The best days of our lives" — so runs the phrase 
eulogising our period at University. 

\TO student in his graduating year will take issue with this expression 
*■ ^ even though there were times when he doubted its infallibility. All of us 
will look back on the past four years with mixed feelings, recalling with some 
misgivings the transition from veteran to student. 

This change would have been more difficult without the understanding 
and enthusiasm of the Faculty. Tolerant of our ignorance, and ever-ready to 
provide that little extra help that we so often needed, our Faculty deserves the 
wholehearted appreciation of the graduating class. 

Looking back over the past year and recounting some of the activities of 
the Skulemen, I feel sure that I speak for all of us when I say that the days here 
have been rich in experience and a source of never-ending memories. 

Once again "Meekness and Peacefulness" reigned on the campus, for the 
Engineers were reunited in the Skule House. The influx of some 400 Freshmen 
brought with it a tidal wave of enthusiasm. Truly indicative of the new spirit 
that was abroad was their energetic participation in the Freshmen Reception, 
and when Paul LaPrairie, master planner of the Float Parade, called for volunteers, 
the response was overwhelming. 

Although the Executive had been looking forward to the return of the exiles 
from Ajax, it was somewhat dubious about its ability to handle the increased 
numbers in the Stores without making some drastic changes. Consequently, 
during the summer considerable alterations were made, necessitating the 
spending of some $1,000.00. Normally this amount would be depreciated over 
a period of five years, with each succeeding executive absorbing a percentage 
of the cost. Nevertheless the present executive, wishing to leave some tangible 
evidence of its work to posterity, has attempted to finance the project completely 
this year. Sporting a new paint job and considerably altered, the Store more 
than proved its efficiency during the Freshman intake. 

Immediately behind the shelves there is a fairly large space commonly 
referred to as "The Back Room." And it is here that divers individuals known 
as the "Back Room Boys" carry out the work of the Society. Wonderful and 
weird are the ideas and thoughts that whirl about this room. To the innocent 
bystander, only chaos and confusion holds sway, and it is difficult to imagine 
how the three top Skule functions could ever have their conception in such an 
atmosphere. But under the guiding hand of John Couse, that genial and 
untiring Vice-President, there was a definite rhyme and reason to the feverish 

Skule is never reticent about its activities and at the least provocation 
modestly steps backwards into the limelight. Sparking the publicity this year 
was a human generator of ideas, one Barny Warren, of "Four-Flusher" fame. 

As Director of Publicity and Publications, it was his task to make the campus 
Skule-conscious, by all the tricks of trade known to a professional Huckster. 

One bearer of Skule's message, "Toike Oike," will probably never win the 
Pulitzer Prize for top "reporting but Joe Brigham and his staff have given the 
paper new significance and have provided entertaining and informative reading 
all year. 

Another source of publicity for Skule, and one that arouses envy among 
other societies across the land, is "Transactions and Year Book." Judging by 
the experience and ability of its Editor, Doug Sherk, "Transactions and Year 
Book" would appear to set a new standard for University publications. 

Both of these Society publications are a heavy drain on the treasury, and 
future years cannot hope to maintain them in the manner to which they have 
become accustomed. A quick glance into the crystal indicates that "Toike Oike" 
must become self-sufficient, and to do so it will have to rely heavily on adver- 
tising or cut down to a single sheet. Similarly, the financing of a school 
magazine is proving more and more difficult, as that watch dog of the treasury, 
John Armour, will agree. The time is fast approaching when the superior 
qualities of "Transactions and Year Book" should have a price tag on them. 

There have also been other forms of publicity that have kept the name of 
Skule in the public eye. Skule continued to hold the respect and attention of 
the S.A.C. by its representatives, Tiny Pickford and Bill Turner. On athletic 
matters Tiny Pickford spoke with the voice of authority and Bill Turner, as 
Chairman of the Blue and White Society, brought back new laurels to the Faculty. 

In general there was a new spirit and solidarity south of the campus which 
was further engendered and fostered by the various year executives. 

A little bit of Ajax was brought into the campus when the Sophomores and 
Freshmen celebrated their forthcoming Xmas exams with the famed Engineers' 
Ball. This idea of two years sponsoring a mutual dance is worthy of consider- 

Line 3 at Ajax. which brings back those memories 
of the "Green Dragon" and the walk down the line 
when the bus had departed. 

ation. It was made apparent to Herb Staneland, President of 5T1, when he made 
plans for a Spring Dance. Finding himself handicapped by low revenue from 
rather indifferent year card sales, he was able to balance his budget by joining 
forces with Don McParland and the sophomore year. 

Although considerable mention is made elsewhere of the class referred to as 
"1066 and all that," the work of their executive should be mentioned here. It 
is not generally realized how much of a load is carried by Dave Davis, the 
President of the Graduating Year, and his four-man executive. Not only are 
they responsible for at least two dances during the year, but their work culmin- 
ates in that biggest social event of an Engineer's life — "The Grad Ball." 

Although social events are a necessary and appealing part of a student's 
year, they must be kept in their proper perspective. Ernie Fedryk, Chairman of 
the Debates Club, working with the 5T0 executive, helped to gain this end by 
bringing to the "General Meetings" several speakers who are outstanding in 
the field of engineering. 

Another important addition to this program of extra-curricular education 
was a bi-weekly series of industrial films shown in the Wallberg Building. The 
series was ably organized and conducted by Mac Cliff, and proved to be very 

The wide variety of work carried out for the Society by the Club Chairmen 
is seldom fully recognized. Most students probably feel that the Chairman 
and Executive of their Club are mainly concerned with organizing dances, 
banquets and stag parties. This, however, is only one phase of their work, 
for as the nucleus of the Engineering Society Executive, the Club Chairmen 
take an active part in its affairs. They provide a direct link between the members 
of their course and the staff. Much of their time is spent in planning field 
trips of particular interest to their own group. 

In conclusion I would like to state that these few post-war years, the great 
number of students, and increased budgets have allowed Skule Spirit to reach 
a new high. Yet the beginning of financial retrenchment has already begun. 
Hard work on the part of extra-curricular enthusiasts has not made such re- 
trenchment apparent. 

The years ahead are going to require delicacy and tact to make "amenable" 
the necessity of greater austerity, as opposed to the memory of temporary 

Let us not live up to the "Jones" of the immediate past years but instead 
hew to a stricter, more spirited, line and live within our means. 

A prophet is without honour in his own country, and the fact that I am 
crying havoc might arouse criticism of those whom I would serve. I would be 
failing my duty, however, as President of the Engineering Society if I did not 
attempt to point the way and possibly make the going a little easier for John 
Folinsbee and his executive.

— The origin of — 
a thousand products 

THIS IS ASBESTOS — a magic mineral with the 
permanence and fire resistance of stone, yet cap- 
able of being spun and woven. To these unique 
properties asbestos owes its versatility. It is an 
essential ingredient in a multitude of Johns- 
Manville products which today serve Canada's 
varied industries from coast to coast. 

Asbestos is the keystone of Johns-Manville's ser- 
vice to industry. From it and other basic raw 
materials, Johns-Manville manufactures important 
industrial materials such as: Industrial Insulations 
— Packings and Gaskets — Transite Pipe — Insulat- 

ing Brick — Refractory Cements — Transite Conduit 
and Korduct — Asbestos Ebony Panel Boards — 
Friction Materials — Asbestos Building Materials 
and many other dependable, efficient, cost-cutting 
J-M products. 

Johns-Manville has been serving industry for 
almost a century. Today skilled research engi- 
neers with the finest research facilities at their 
disposal are constantly seeking new ways in which 
Asbestos can be used to improve to- 
day's J-M products and develop new ^.y^p. 
products to meet the new needs of zJkA I 
industry and commerce tomorrow. 





Tradition holds that the Fourth 
Year President presides over 
the General Meetings, but due 
to the fact that this year's in- 
cumbent was "up to the ears," 
the Debates Club Chairman, E. 
Fedryk, assumed a goodly por- 
tion of the burden and the duties 
were divided. 

On November 11th, 1949. Pro- 
fessor L. F. Grant of Queen's 
University, and Past President 
of the E.I.C., spoke on "100 
Years of Engineering in Can- 
ada," to a regrettably small 
gathering. His talk was inter- 
esting and humourous, covering 
particularly the development of 
roads, railroads, canals and 

On December 7th. 1949. Pro- 
fessor E. A. Allcut of the Depart- 
ment of Mechanical Engineer- 
ing, spoke on "Atmospheric Pol- 
lution and Its Consequences." 
His illustrated talk was of inter- 
est to the sparse crowd. 

On February 9th. 1950. Mr. H. 

W. Tate of the Toronto Transpor- 
tation Commission addressed 
the meeting on "Public Trans- 
portation and Rapid Transit." 
The crowd was the largest for a 
general meeting in the experi- 
ence of this executive, and num- 
bered well over 600. The speech 
was well delivered and ex- 
tremely well received by the 

A further type of general 
meeting was instituted this year. 
Films were shown by Malcolm 
Cliff, IV Chemical. Various in- 
dustrial films were obtained 
from local libraries and from 
industrial firms. These show- 
ings took place during the noon 
hour in the Wallberg Memorial 
building. The Society is indebt- 
ed to Professor Mcintosh and 
Dr. McLaughlin for their assist- 
ance in making this service

As the largest Canadian-owned company making heavy equipment for generation, 
distribution and application of electrical power, the English Electric Company of Canada 
has developed new types of apparatus — air blast circuit breakers, "distributed con- 
centric" transformers, class C transformers and dual frequency motors, to name a few. 

Naturally then — "When you think of power, think of English Electric". A chain of 
District offices and Representatives across Canada is equipped to serve you well.

the treasurer reports 

OEPTEMBER 1949 saw the return, from Ajax, of the First and Second Year 
^ Skulemen to the Toronto Campus. This, of course, also marked the end of 
the dual Society and charged this year's executive under Bill Walker with the 
responsibility of running Skule functions and affairs for all four years. 

The task at hand was to provide for the Skulemen the same lavish type of 
social functions that they had become accustomed to, and at the same time 
juggle these expenditures with the store operating expenses to balance with 
our diminished revenue. 

Perhaps at this point a few figures would help the reader to understand the 
situation. During the school year cf 1948-49 the revenues for the fljax and 
Toronto Societies were as follows: 

Toronto Division: 

Students' Fees $ 6,870.00 

Interest on Investments 160.00 

Net Trading Profit— Supply Dept. 3,289.41 

Ajax Division: 

Students' Fees $ 4,483.00

Marion and Barb., always ready

The Treasurer Reports (cont'd.) 

These combined revenues of $17,168.37 for the two Societies as shown 
have already had office salaries deducted, so that close to the entire amount 
was available for what can broadly be classified as S.P.S. social functions and 

For this year the estimated revenue is as follows: 

Net Trading Profit _ __ $ 2,255.00 

Students' Fees $ 8,529.00 

$ 10.784.00 

These figures show this year's operating revenue to be some 62.5% of that 
available for last year's. Enrolment, on the other hand, has only dropped from 
approximately 3,800 to 2,900 students. This gives a figure for this year's enrol- 
ment of 76.5% of that of 1948-1949. 


The difficult and important job of cutting the costs of various social 
functions fell directly upon the First Vice-President, John Couse, and in that 
capacity his remarkable success can best be judged by a glance at a few specific 
functions. The two big affairs of the year are always the flt-Home and Skule 

Last year these functions were subsidized to the extent of about $400.00 and 
$2,000.00, respectively. This year comparable functions were enjoyed by the 
student body, and the fit-Home required no subsidy while Skule Nite only 
needed about $200.00. 

The "Transactions and Year Book," under Doug Sherk as editor, this year 
must be published with a subsidy of $1,200.00 as compared with some $1,950.00 
for last year. 

Similarly, Joe Brigham, Editor of "Toike Oike," has had to work with 
$950.00 instead of the almost $1,400 available last year, fit the same time that 
these men and many others were trying to reduce their necessary subsidies, 
Jim finderson, 2nd Vice-President of the Society, charged with the responsibility 
of running the stores, had to try to groom operating expenses and maintain a 
margin of profit, in spite of rising costs both of supplies and labour. 


This year another expense necessarily incurred was that due to the alter- 
ations required in the store and office. This cost was roughly $1,000.00. Instead 
of depreciating this figure to succeeding years, which will also benefit by the 
improvements, the Society is endeavouring to carry the total expense with the 
1949-1950 budget. 

The trend toward financial "retrenchment" in S.P.S. affairs has thus begun 
and, judged on facts and figures, this year's executive certainly has been 
successful in its efforts toward this end. There are many men responsible for 
this measure of success: some hold official elected positions; many cannot. 
Bill Walker, in spite of serious illness during the year and an eight-week hospital 
confinement, has provided a degree of leadership, both in guiding and co- 
ordinating the activities of those working under him, that is deserving of the 
highest praise. 

The immediate years to come will see a continuance of these general 
financial difficulties, and it is hoped that the policies and practices in this regard 
as followed this year will be of some help and guidance to succeeding

An engineer in training. Dean 
Tupper on a survey party in the 
Canadian Rockies in 1928. south 
of Crow's Nest Pass. 


ES, I BELIEVE he's in now," replied the secretary in the outer office; and 
we went in to interview the Dean. 

We had no inkling as to what we would say, nor what we would ask, but 
as we entered the inner office our half -fears were eased; there we were greeted 
by the firm handclasp of a tall, pleasant person in his mid-forties — Dean Tupper. 

After posing a few standard questions, we learned that the Dean was born in 
Lynn, Massachusetts, on July 21st, 1905, and that his boyhood home was in the 
West, in Calgary and Saskatoon. He had heard of Toronto through some of his 
high school teachers, who were Varsity alumni, and in 1923 he came East to 
enrol in Chemical Engineering at S.P.S. However, his Alberta high school 
matriculation was not acceptable here, and he returned home. Two years later 
he came East again, and joined the Class of 2T9, Mechnical Engineering. 

When we asked Dean Tupper if any memories of his life at School stood out 
especially, he replied that there were "none he would care to resurrect."! While 
at Varsity he resided at North House, took active part in residence athletics, and 
had a special interest in photography, being a member of the Camera Club at 
Hart House. He was Chairman of the Mechanical and Electrical Club in his 
fourth year. 

Upon graduation, he spent seven or eight months at Riverside Iron Works, 
Calgary, as a draftsman. From there he went to Ottawa to work for the National 
Research Council at a time when N.R.C. was just starting its own laboratories. 
His work there was chiefly on the design of wind tunnels and aeronautical re- 
search equipment. 

In 1938 Dean Tupper took postgraduate work in Aeronautical Engineering 
and Mathematics at the University of Michigan, obtaining his Master's Degree 

In 1942 he was suddenly instructed by N.R.C. "to settle his affairs, make 
his will, and depart immediately" on a "hush-hush" trip to the United Kingdom, 
with a team that was going over to take a look at the gas turbine work the 
British were doing. Upon his return, he helped set up a lab. at Winnipeg, which 
in its three-year existence tested nearly all the British types of engines. In 1946, 
A. V. Roe (Canada) Ltd. took over private ccntrol of the place, and the Dean 
returned to N.R.C. 


From there he was sent to inaugurate and operate a new reactor plant at 
Chalk River, where he was in temporary command of a research organization 
of two hundred people. In February, 1947, the newly-formed Atomic Energy 
Control Board took over responsibility for the whole project. 

About a year ago Dean Tupper accepted his present position, that of head 
of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering. 

We asked him if he noticed any changes here at Skule since 1929. The 
Dean replied that the greatest noticeable difference was the size: his graduating 
class was one hundred strong, all courses, with a total registration in 1929 of 
some five hundred engineers. Under this system, he continued, students and 
staff were able to know each other a great deal better than at present. 

Dean Tupper brought to light one item of which we were unaware; namely, 
that the majority of the graduates, to his knowledge, greatly dislike the term 
"Skule", and rather insist on its original spelling and meaning: "School". 

The Dean remembers well his first day on the campus last year, after 20 
years' absence. After settling himself at Hart House in the morning, he attended 
the opening of the New Mechanical Building in the afternoon, followed by the 
official opening of the new Physics Wing. These ceremonies were concluded 
by a tea, and later, in the evening, by a Special Convocation — and the day was a 
typical one. 

At the tea, of the one hundred or so persons present, the Dean says that 
he was the youngest — a striking contrast to the situation at Chalk River, where 
he claims his associates knew him as "the Old Man."!- 

When asked whether his wife and family (Bill, 15, James, 11, and Doreen, 
9) treat him with any more respect now that he is in his present position, Dean 
Tupper stated "defintely not. Though everyone else, I think, regards me as 
somewhat of a fragile teacup."! 

Time was drawing on, and we had been talking for nearly an hour. After 
we had learned of his hobbies of skiing and sailing, and of the 18-ft. "Y" class 
sail boat he once built, we asked the Dean one final question: "What is your 
opinion of your present job as Dean of the largest engineering faculty in 

Our reply was a mcdest, but sincere, "I'm fascinated by it."

OALUTATIONS to the Honourable and Ancient Company 
^ of Cannoneers and felicitations to those members who go 
forth in 1950 to exemplify the high quality of the professional 
instruction and the fine discipline of the self-training to be 
found in the "Skule.' 

1950 appeared, in 1946, to be very distant! How quickly 
time has flown since you entered, undoubtedly, with some 
misgiving, the drab Gates of Ajax! By your own alchemy 
you readily transmuted the dull tones of a war establishment 
to the colourful hues of an academic hearthstone. On mem- 
ory's screen there will appear from time to time flashes of 
your university life. In tumbling sequence you will see 
your residence, the Chapel, the Recreation Hall, Hart House Ajax, the Cafeteria, the caravan 
loaded with precious freight as it rumbled to the "lines. 1 ' the far-flung corridors, the well- 
appointed lecture rooms and the modern laboratories on the shore of Lake Ontario. You 
will live over again the "bull sessions," the snacks, the long walks from the Highway, the 
debates, the games, the shows, the dances, the parties and all the other varied activities of 
university days and nights. Now and then shouts of cheery laughter will brighten your 
reveries. The sombreness of hardships, disappointments and reverses will be relieved by the 
bright tints of the joys of attainment and the bonds of friendship. Then the second reel 
will have the scenes of your student days at Queen's Park with its larger company to which 
you brought, in high degree, your individual zest and your corporate seal. 

Your diplomas attest your competence for admission to the ranks of a distinguished 
profession. But you — as your own Chief Examiner — must determine whether you will be 
content to be merely skilled technologists without any concern about life's problems and 

Frandegaris in his poem "Then and Now" contrasts for us two states of mind: 

"Time when I worked at cutting wood Time now I weary to be wise 

And when the day was done there stood In ways philosophers devise ; 

Neat piles upon the clean swept floor ; 

On going home I closed the door 

With something done, and life was good. 

A nd lo ! the pile of tangle groxvs 
Beyond all doors that I can close, 
Beyond the earth, beyond the skies. 

As a university graduate you should never be satisfied with the contentment of 
cutting wood. You must "weary to be wise." The fulfilment of your pledge of fealty to your 
Alma Mater will not yield — you should now recognize — ease of mind or complacency of soul. 

The measure of true success for you will be found in the size of the "pile of tangle" 
at life's close. Although you can never succeed in reducing all life's mysteries to "neat 
piles upon the clean swept floor," you will find satisfaction in striving as did that heroic 
Scot who wrote, "To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive." and that gifted 
Englishman who sang, "A man's reach should exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for?" 




to the L^lctS3 of 50 

X TOW is the time that you are leaving behind you all the years of your childhood and 
*■ ^ of your adolescence, all the years of your education and training, to emerge into the 
great wide world. Is it a suitable time? 

I sometimes wonder if the students of fifty years ago had a feeling that they were 
born far too late. No worlds remained to conquer, nothing remained to be done. The great 
continent of North America had been explored ; the last frontiers were gone ; the vanishing 
Indian tribes could be found only on their reservations; the continent had been spanned 
with railways so that one could go nearly anywhere without having to endure the covered 
wagon hardships and perils of his forefathers. In fact. I wonder if the young men of 
almost every age have not felt that they had arrived just too late; nearly everything worth 
doing had been done ; the jobs were finished. 

Now is the time. Now is the time when opportunity was never greater. I submit 
that any appearance of completion is wholly fallacious. Now is the time to work toward 
the elimination of war. Now is the time to banish starvation from this world. Now is the 
time to strive ever more vigorously toward the abolition and consequence of disease. Now 
is the time when we must recognize as frontiers many, nay all, of the undesirable conditions 
which man has regarded in the past as part of his environment as established by Nature. 
Through countless ages. war. starvation and disease have been taken for granted. They 
were not then considered as frontiers. Today we must recognize them as challenges bigger 
than many of those which lay in the past ; bigger than the discovery of continents, than the 
building of railways. Now is the time to go forth into a world, wonderful, but not yet 
perfect, in which there are so many things to do. 


Albert Russell Zimmer 

A LBERT RUSSEL ZIMMER, Professor of Electrical Engineering, passed away 


on November 11th, 1949, at the age of 61. 

Born at Cranbrook, Ontario, in 1888, Professor Zimmer obtained his 
early education in the public schools of Cranbrook and Brussels, Ontario. He 
entered the School of Practical Science in 1903 as a freshman in the course of 
Electrical Engineering. In 1907 he was awarded the diploma of the School of 
Practical Science, and in 1909 the degree of Bachelor of Applied Science. He 
joined the staff of the Electrical Engineering Department as a demonstrator in 
the autumn of the same year, and his connection with the staff remained un- 
broken from that time until his death. In 1916 he married Olef May Woodcroft, 
who survives him, as do a son, Paul, and a daughter, Mary. 

Professor Zimmer was an active member of the Toronto Section of the 
American Institute of Electrical Engineers, and served as Section Chairman dur- 
ing the session 1946-47. He was a member of the Ruskin Literary and Debating 
Society and was active in the High Park branch of the Young Men's Christian 
Association. As a member of the Faculty Council for 28 years and of the Uni- 
versity Senate for 10 years, and as an active and conscientious worker in com- 
mittees of both bodies, his judgment was respected and his opinion valued. 

Professor Zimmer will linger long in the minds of his many students as a 
great man and proficient teacher. He was ever an advocate of the moral obliga- 
tion that rests upon every member of a great professional group — to place excel- 
lence above quantitative considerations, loyalty above individual aspirations, 
and service above personal gain.

5T0 Graduate Executive 

THE letters "5T0" symbolize the achievement of almost the ultimate in School 
functions. Many men in both the younger and older age groups have 
contributed their services, talents and an abundance of unselfish drive, to form 
a team spirit that was unmatched. 

To make certain that this abundance of group spirit does not dwindle and 
fade away, the objective of the Permanent Executive is to maintain an active 
committee v/hich will above all keep in contact with the members of the 
graduating class. By means of individual club functions — reunions, dinners 
and the occasional stag — it is hoped that a strong year spirit may be retained. 
The co-operation of the graduates will be very much required in order to 
maintain a contact with as many as possible. 

It has been suggested that the members of the Permanent Executive be 
changed at the end of a certain period, or if their work takes them far afield. 
The Executive is definitely in agreement with such a suggestion, and will 
endeavour to set up some form of constitution to provide for such changes. 

It is hoped that when financial conditions are somewhat eased, the class of 
5T0 will be able to see its way clear to create some sort of award to future 
students, such as the Second Mile Award, now presented by the Class of 3T5. 

At various times the Executive will send out news letters to let the graduates 
know of class activity. The success of such a letter will depend upon the news 
contributions of the class members, which should be forwarded to the secretary. 

It should be remembered that a little co-operation will do much to keep the 
name 5T0 where it belongs — at the top of the School graduating years.

The Class of 5T0 


HPIME is best remembered in terms of events, and for the "Men of the Halt 
Century" our scholastic span covers from ft to H in world history. The 
explosion of the test Atom-bomb at Bikini had scarcely dispersed when 1,800 
hopefuls arrived at Ajax ready to start the search for an elusive education. Now 
after four years we are ready to emerge from the end of the production line, 
considerably reduced in number, to a world dominated by the H-bomb and its 
power. Thus for our class, the traditional uncertainty of those about to enter 
the main stream of life is intensified, for we find that the general philosophy is 
"Where do we go from here?" However, the purpose of this article is not to 
answer that question but rather to summarize briefly where we have been. 

That first year seemed to be occupied in building up one's endurance for 
the long treks between classes, alibiing those terrible marks at the Xmas exams, 
and trying to figure out how the second term could possibly have gone so 
rapidly. Tentative steps were taken by all in finding relaxation by athletics or 
house parties — with notable success. The finals came and went, and with them 
about four hundred of the originals. The survivors promptly made rash prom- 
ises of increased studying in Second Year, while quietly congratulating them- 
selves that "the worst was over." The naivety of this statement is a matter of 

Second year, however, saw 5T0 starting to feel its muscles, so to speak, for 
as the Senior Class at the Ajax Country Club we were made to shoulder the 
burden of Athletic Association, Engineering Society and Joint House Committee 
activities. That these responsibilities were taken in stride is evidenced by the 
success of such notable activities as the Sports Nights at the Rec. Hall, the En- 
gineers' Ball, Soph Dance and the innumerable house parties. By the end of the 
year the class had acquired a pretty fair know-how on the extra-curricular plane, 
and were well fortified for the pending assault on the main campus. Unfortun- 
ately, the Annual Sieving saw a couple of hundred more step aside to try other 
means of livelihood, or to have another go at the educational mill. 

For the remnants, the two years of seasoning in the wilderness paid divi- 
dends when the Class reported for registration in September of 1948. Locating 
the KCR was a minor problem to a Skuleman skilled in ferreting out the Spruce 
Villa from under four feet of snow, and the year was launched in proper fashion. 
Despite the fact that the Gold Dust Boys of 4T9 were tapering off on the academic 
side and jumping into the extra-curricular puddle with a big splash, 5T0 took its 
share of the work and honours with enthusiastic participation in both Society 
and Athletic Association activities. 


This year the Class not only went all out on the various activities as before, 
but it also managed to leave behind two legacies for those who follow. The first 
is the latest in the noble lineage of Skule Cannons, whose voice has engendered 
fear in generations of Artsmen's hearts. This imposing piece of ordnance is fully 
mobile with a variable firing angle and has adequate means of securing for 
extended barrages. It is felt that this weapon will serve as ample defence against 
any future marauders from the less fortunate faculties attempting to reap the 
benefits of our superior technical knowledge. 

The other notable heritage which we pass to those succeeding us is the 
no doubt world-renowned Lady Godiva Memorial Band. The success which 
this gregarious aggregation has enjoyed is shown by the fact that the new im- 
pressario of the Metropolitan Opera Company has made certain offers to the 
Patron of the Group, Paul LaPrairie, (who doubles as bass drummer). However, 
both Mr. LaPrairie and Captain Thomas Kenny, our distinguished conductor, felt 
that it would not be up to our usual cultural standards to resort to opera, and the 
emissary was sent packing. It is our fervent wish that those to follow will main- 
tain this tradition intact and will not permit such subversive habits as practising 
or the reading of music to detract from the uninhibited reputation which follows 
the group now. 

The extent to which the class partook in such functions as Skule Nite, and 
the School-At-Home, can best be assessed by scanning their programmes, for 
right from the start of the year an enthusiastic response was shown by the mem- 
bers of the class. The first senior year function was the Fall Dance, held at the 
Palace Pier on the 13th of October. This affair was very congenial, thanks to the 
individual parties which the classes made up in advance, and set the pattern for 
the Winter Dance on the 12th of January, again at the Palace Pier. Ellis McLin- 
tock's Orchestra provided the musical means, while Larry Foster, a very talented 
impersonator, entertained us with his impressions of some of the larger lights 
in show business. 

The latter part of the year was spent in preparation for the Grad Ball, with its 
multitudinous details. A committee of nineteen members was formed early in 
January to implement the plans outlined by the year executive, and from then on 
if four people could be found talking secretly in a corner, the odds were that it 
was part of the Grad Ball Committee discussing ways and means of making the 
function worthy of the Class of 5T0. The budget for the affair was in excess 
of $10,000, excluding the refreshment expenses, and the object of the committee 
was to make it equal to any dance which has ever been held in the University. 
The success of that purpose can only be evaluated by those that were there, 
and since these words are written before the event I shall leave the pictures in 
this book to speak for themselves. 

find so we leave the little Red School House settling slowly on its founda- 
tions and set forth to spread the Gospel of "Meekness and Peacefulness." I 
should like to thank all the members of the Class for their fine co-operation this 
year, and also to extend my sincere appreciation to the other members of the 
Executive and the Grad Ball Committee for having given so generously of their 
time and talents. To Jack Pulford and the Grad Executive, the best of luck in 
keeping the "Men of the Half Century" together as a strong unit of the filumni.

THE 1949-50 session was a very successful one for the Civils, and thanks to 
the deft manoeuvring of the books by our able Treasurer, Cam Miller, we 
managed to stay out of the red and venture safely into the black. 

The Fourth Year boys started the year with a eld trip to the power plants 
at Queenston and DeCew Falls. Dr. Lord deserves a big vote of thanks for 
helping to organize this trip. 

The middle of November found the Civils gathered at Ye Olde Rouge Hills 
Golfe and Countrie Club for a quiet stag. fi large bouquet of orchids to Jim 
Schissler for arranging a very entertaining evening — nuff said! 

Brian Dickens, IV Year rep., scheduled a field trip to the T.T.C. Rapid Transit 
System, where the 5T0 men had an extremely interesting visit, fill stages of 
construction could be observed, in addition to models of the completed subway. 

Third and Second Years visited the Steel Company of Canada at Hamilton, 
during the third and fourth weeks of February, respectively. Both years had a 
very good turnout, and from all reports they were very much impressed with the 
magnitude of the plant and equipment. 

On the evening of February 21st, the men of Civil Engineering grabbed 
their best gals and headed for the Savarin Hotel. There, thanks to a splendid 
organizing job by Bill Cole, a swell evening was had by all. The "Four Flushers," 
of 5T0 Civil and international fame, comprised the official entertainment, filter 
singing several numbers, the quartette was forced, by popular demand, to give 
its rendition of that old folk song — "Cigareats and Whusky." The roof promptly 
fell in. 

Later, Mrs. Morrison was presented with an orchid — a lovely flower for a 
lovely lady. "C.F.," our Honourary Chairman, also received a gift! 

Arthur Murray- 
some lessons. 

-please see "Gate-Valve" Laari and wife; they'll give you 

To end the year's festivities on a very high note, Dr. Marcus Long was 
invited to speak to us at the Club Dinner in Hart House. When the meal was 
over, the meeting adjourned to the Debates Room, where Dr. Long spoke about 
"The Failure of Education." His subject matter was excellent; h's personality 
without equal. 

— And that pretty well covers the year's activities. I would like to thank 
Professor Loudon, Professor Morrison, the executive, and the hard-working class 
reps., for all their wonderful help during the year.

Civil Grads 

SURVEY CfiMP is over, but it will linger long in the hearts of the 5T1 Civils 
— the memory of the blazing morning sun casting a hue of breathless beauty 
over the trees, rocks and water and the image of "Slim" Walker, sleeping like an 
exhausted cherub in his wee bed in "The Pit"; 

Then off to the Cafeteria where those sweet young things Ethel, Muriel and 
Sadie, waited on us hand and foot; and then there was Marge. — 

Next, out across St. Nora's Lake to a station; ah, beautiful St. Nora's Lake — 
that phenomenal body of water proven by stadia traverse to have a 1% slope 
to the west! 

Some stayed nearer the camp to do base-line, level and curve work, and 
also to use up any left over games on Jimmy's pin-ball machine. 

Forest fires were more numerous than usual, and some of our stalwarts 
were pressed (I mean forced) into service at 65^' per. George Gorman, it is said 
(by George), saved the camp from the holocaust. 

fit night we'll remember Hughie Fielding's talented ivory-tickling, Benny's 
records, the moonlight trips to Camp Comak, the dances at Carnarvon, "The 
Boot," and Minden. 

There were some ardent hikers such as Barber and Barhydt — but boys, a ten- 
mile hike at 4:00 a.m.? 

Bob "Nature Boy" McQuillan spent his evenings combing the burrs out of 
four months of beard and hair. 

find then there were the keen types surveying twenty miles from camp on 
Sunday night, according to Prof. Treadgold; what say, Speigelman? 

However, there came a time when everyone finally got to bed, and even 
the echoes of Willy Pattison's "Let's have a party," had died out.

HIS year the M. & M. Club enjoyed a period of diverse activities. 

Along educational lines were guest speakers from the C.I.M.M., the O.M.A., 
and the C.M.M.A. The members of the graduating year were treated, according 
to custom, to dinner at the R.Y. by the Toronto Branch of the C.I.M.M. 

The M. & M. Club has good reason to be proud of its participation in Engin- 
eering Society affairs. Club activities were curbed in order to give full co-opera- 
ation to All-Skule functions. 

The boys turned out in force to help make Skule's entry in the Homecoming 
Float Parade a success. Do you remember Sandy Johnston, Larry Neal, and R. 
Thompson with the Skule Cannon? On Nat Scott's Miners' Float Bill Glazier 
and Don Rae swapped jokes while Steve Hegion and Bubbles sold shares to 
the Curb Market. Trout Taylor, as the Geologist's squaw, brewed coffee and 
Ken Gradwell, Terry Flanagan and the Gauvreaus planted their claim posts on 
the streets and gave away free samples of rock. Sid Wright was school-master 
on the big float, with his pupils, John Gleason, Harold Nelson, and Don Hogarth, 
who terrorized the honest burghers of T.O. with their antics. 

find then there were other occasions when the Skule Cannon was brought 
forth by Pete Chmara, Gord Griffiths, Louie Schell, and the rest of Ye Ancient 
and Honourable Company of School Cannoneers. 

The Annual Donkey Barbeque, as the final fling, was an unqualified social 
success, because of the aid of such men as Bill Aitkens, Bob Oxland, Bill Wil- 
liams, John Prendergast and many others. 

The year has been a full one, and one to be remembered.

THE Mechanical Club has just finished a "red hot" year which has been 
studded with many educational and entertaining activities. The trend this 
year was away from the technical lecture evenings, which in the past have 
proved none too successful. The one dinner meeting featured John Fisher, who 
kept the audience laughing while he injected a helping of Canadian nationalism. 

There were twenty-four field trips, which is a record for any club in En- 
gineering. Notable among these were the trips to Queenston and DeCew Falls, 
Hamilton Steel Foundries, Canada Wire & Cable, A. V. Roe Canada Ltd., and 
Canadian General Motors. These trips should be the basic purpose of the club, 
s.'nce they give the student an overall picture of industry that will prove very 
useful when it comes time to find a summer or permanent job. 

The Mechanical Club contributed its small bit to the Freshman Reception, 
and to the Alumni during Old Home Week, by providing a conducted tour 
through the Mechanical Building for the Freshmen, and by having Open House 
for the Alumni. The Fourth Year Open House gave the graduating students an 
opportunity to bring their wives or girl friends (or both) down to see where they 
have been hibernating for the past four years. 

At the "Gay Nineties Stag" many of those in attendance tried to live up to 
the Skulemen's promise of consuming forty pints. The entertainment included 
Toronto's top comedian, Doug Romam, and a short skit by two fellow students 
who prefer to remain anonymous. 

There were many others who took active part in the club besides the elected 
executive. It would take too much space to mention all.

Engineering Physics 

I 'HE Engineering Physics Club began its year with a general meeting held 
-*■ in the Debates Room of Hart House on the 26th of October. Prof. K. B. Jackson, 
the Honorary Chairman of the Club, and head of the Department of Applied 
Physics, gave a talk on photography and its applications in science and industry. 
He showed many slides, including long-distance photographs taken with an 
unusual lens arrangement, and three dimensional photographs, some of which 
were in color. 

The club held a dance at the Savarin on January 17th. Dancing to the 
music of Eddie Stroud and laughter to the jokes of ventriloquist Si Leonard were 
the features of the evening, which was well attended and enjoyed- by all. 

Field trips were held by the Third and Fourth Years. The Third Year 
students visited the plant of the Radio Valve Company, to inspect the manufac- 
turing processes involved in the making of receiving-type tubes. Following a 
custom originated last year, the Fourth Year students took an extended field 
trip to Rochester and Syracuse, N.Y. In Rochester an interesting afternoon was 
spent visiting the research laboratories of the Eastman Kodak Co. Five members 
of the Thermodynamic Option continued on to Syracuse. In Syracuse they 
toured the Carrier Corporation research and development departments, and the 
Engineer's Training School on the following day. The field trip was believed 
by all to be very interesting and instructive. It is hoped that the custom of 
taking extended field trips will be continued by succeeding Fourth Year

" I "HE '49-'50 session for the Industrial Chemical Club provided an interesting 
* and educational program, highlighted by various social affairs. 

While members of the Graduating Class were enjoying themselves on a 
field trip to the boisterous city of Montreal (Varsity-McGill week-end) the junior 
test-tube engineers of 5T2 staged a social evening, with entertainment provided 
by members of the class. The seniors toured several process industries — a 
sugar refinery in Montreal, paper mills in Gatineau and Cornwall, and an In- 
dustrial Alcohol plant in Gatineau. 

fit the end of October a dance held in the Windsor Room of the Savarin 
Hotel, although not too well attended, was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone 

The first formal meeting for the year was held in the middle of November 
in the Debates Room of Hart House. A subject of prime interest to Chemical 
Engineers (and all Engineers) was introduced: the production of grain alcohol. 
After the showing of several interesting films by a representative of one of the 
better known distilleries, a discussion was held on this all-consuming subject. 

The following week-end, after drinking in such pertinent information, the 
members of the club enjoyed a second evening's dancing at the Savarin. This 
dance, which featured some enjoyable intermission entertainment, was very 
well attended. 

In the first week of December the second General Meeting of the club 
was held in the Wallberg Memorial Building, and the Vice-chairman and Secre- 
tary were elected. Plans for the coming term were discussed in some detail. 


In mid-January the third and final meeting took place. Interesting films on 
colloid chemistry, formica, and nylon were shown. The only business discuss- 
ed was the combination sleigh-ride and dance which took place late in January. 
Since Old Man Winter had taken a short rest, wagons had to be provided. 
Enjoyment hit a new high at this affair, and it should have a permanent place in 
any future agenda. 

A very notable part of the year's business was the institution of a Student 
Chapter of the Chemical Institute of Canada. This organization will provide 
free films, send us prominent speakers, and subsidize Club field trips. Since 
the Chapter was not formed until late in January, its full benefits were not 
realized; the only field trip organized took place on February 28th at the Hydro 
Electric Power Commission Testing Laboratories. 

On the first of March the annual Club Dinner was held at the Savarin 
Tavern. After a delicious steak dinner, the new Club Chairman was inaugurated, 
and the year's activities were formally concluded.

THE session of 1949-50 saw the re-amalgamation of the Toronto and fljax 
Electrical Clubs into the one organization, as in pre-fljax days. This gave the 
Electricals a membership of over five hundred. With this in mind, the executive 
planned the Electrical fit-Home for early November (to meet the needs of the 
large numbers). The function was attended by over 250 couples, and several 
staff members and guests joined in the festivities. 

filso in November, the Third Year Students toured the STELCO and West- 
inghouse plants in Hamilton, while the Seniors visited the HEPC Generating 
Station at DeCew Falls and proceeded on to inspect the large Niagara-Hudson 
steam generating station in Buffalo, N.Y. 

At a general meeting early in December Mr. fi. fl. Mcfirthur of Canadian 
Westinghouse gave a lecture and an illustration of C.S.P. Transformer equipment. 

The first function of the new year, the Electrical Club Dinner, was held 
on the 18th of January at the Prince George Hotel. The guests were Mr. fl. E. 
Wilson and Mr. F. T. Simson, of Brazilian Traction, who illustrated their talks 
with slides and presented the sound-colour film "Modern Brazil," which was 
produced by their company. 

On March 6th, at a 4 o'clock meeting of the Club, Mr. W. H. Perevey, from 
General Electric, gave a very interesting demonstration of Fuse Co-ordination 

This ended the major activities under the 1949-50 executive.

' I *HE Ceramics Club's activities for the year began with numerous field trips 
•*■ made to plants in the Ceramic industry. While most of these were in 
the Toronto area, the Third and Fourth Years were able to visit the mine and 
processing plant of the American Nepheline Corporation at Stoney Lake, near 

The Fourth Year, as representatives of the Club, attended a convention at 
the Mount Royal Hotel in Montreal, under the auspices of the Canadian 
Ceramic Society. Many fine technical talks were heard, and a tour was made 
of the Canada Cement Company. A stop was made also at the Bureau of Mines 
in Ottawa, where the available research facilities were inspected. 

To end the year, a mixed social evening was held in conjunction with the 
Toronto branch of the Ceramic Society. The feature of the evening was a 
lecture and coloured slides of the Ceramic industries in the United States and 
Mexico, given by Mr. Howard Deeth of the American Nepheline Corporation. 

The executive would like to wish every success for the graduating class 
and for the new executive in their work next year.

THE Aero Club was not a large group this year. With very small classes in 
First and Second Year, the total enrolment was about one hundred, half of 
whom were in their graduating year. 

Class reps for the various years were elected early in the first term, and 
the remaining executive at the first club meeting. 

This first meeting was addressed by Mr. C. W. Wright, an authority on 
public speaking. His talk was interspersed with humourous anecdotes illustrat- 
ing each of the points he made, and was very well received. 

Plans were started for a field-trip to the National Research Council at Ottawa, 
to be held early in November. It was planned to make this coincide with the 
field-trip the Blues were making down to Kingston, so that we could take in the 
game on the way back, but the high costs involved in such a trip proved too big 
an obstacle for most of the fellows, and the plans had to be abandoned. 

fit a Hart House meeting in November, S/L Baker, from the RCAF Photo- 
graphic Establishment at Ottawa, outlined the methods used and the difficulties 
encountered in the Aerial Survey of Canada, which is just now being completed.

The sound colour film, "Photo Canada," was shown, and illustrated the opera- 
tions of the survey. 

In January, Mr. J. C. Floyd, project designer at A. V. Roe, and the chief 
designer of the "Jetliner" transport, gave an excellent address on the design 
of this aircraft. An extensive set of slides on both the technical and economic 
aspects of the design were used to illustrate his explanations and prove his 
arguments. A popular question period lasted even after the building was 
closed, and the meeting adjourned to the K.C.R., where the merits of flying 
wings, prop-jets, and so forth, were continued until the group was swept out. 

Arrangements have been tentatively set to have interested members of the 
club visit the AVRO plant to see the "Jetliner" and the new fighter when it comes 
off the secret list. At the time of going to press, the fighter is still secret. 

In February, almost the total strengh of the club attended a dinner meeting 
at Muirhead's Restaurant. After a steak dinner, movies showing the latest 
Eritish aircraft were shown, and then the boys relaxed into some harmonizing 
and elbow-bending. It was a very fine evening, and much credit is due to 
Murray Southcote and Art Campbell, who did most of the organizing, and to 
Larry Lymburner and Lionel Adams, who helped them. It was a nice way to 
end up club activities before the big press.

Engineering and Business 

* I "HE Engineering and Business Club activities got under way on the second 
■*■ day of school, September 22nd, 1949. Thirty-four members knocked their 
golf balls around the Cliffside Golf Course in quest of the first Engineering and 
Business Club Golf Trophy. Bill Penhorwood was the winner with an 84, Gordon 
Campbell was second with 86, and Bill Seal third with his 88. It is hoped that 
the Club in future years will carry on this event and award a golf trophy annually. 

A club dinner meeting was held in Hart House on December 1st, with a 
large number of members present. Dean Tupper, our newly installed Dean, 
was the guest speaker. He gave us a good idea as to what to expect of employ- 
ers in our first few years after graduation. The golf trophy was presented to 
Bill Penhorwood at this meeting, as well as hidden hole prizes to Gord. Campbell 
and Merv. Siberry, and the "most honest golfer" prize to Bill Stewart. 

A Christmas Dance on the last day of the fall term was thoroughly enjoyed 
by all who attended. Len Duke and his orchestra supplied the music with our 
own Herb. Wedderburn and a couple from St. Michael's College entertaining us 
during intermission. 

To end up the Club activities for the year 1949-50, a smoker was held in 
late February. Although it was the last Club function, it is presumed that each 
year will have a get-together of their own after these April exams. 

Congratulations are in order to the Engineering and Business Basketball 
Teams. At the time of writing, the First and Fourth Year teams are in the play- 
offs. Best of luck in your series, boys. 

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the executive for 
their work and support, and also to Ken Walters, Ken Noxon and their boys for 
their hard work on the dance and smoker. 

Best wishes to the grads of 5TO. And may the undergrads carry on and 
keep the Engineering and Business Club in the forefront.

The Class of 5T1 

f~\ CIVILIZATION (and we use the term loosely, since it is to include Toronto 
^-^ and the campus), the class of 5T1 salutes you! We have finally left the 
w'lds and come to town. There was a little confusion at first, of course; after 
the pleasant friendliness of a dog team, a street car is a fearsome sight. The 
discovery of the Mocambo and the K.C.R. was, however, a morale-lifting force 
that could have been exceeded only by the discovery of a forgotten $10 bill. 

fl comparison of Toronto and fljax? Well, the Wilderness Fact Factory 
included some large-magnitude distances, but the student never had to climb 
four flights of stairs to get to a lab. H.H., we admit, looks much better than did 
its little brother at fljax, but, we ask you, which Tuck Shop did you enjoy more? 
— And the interesting people you bumped into in the mob racing for the Green 
Dragon, or standing in front of 722 in the line-up for the Cateteria! 

Who can forget residence life? Remember the man in the next room who 
liked fll Jolson, and who kept his radio loud so his friend down the hall could 
hear too? find remember your friend who met the lovely little girl at that big 
house party, and who has ever since carried the match book on which he wrote 
her address, just in the hope that some day he may be able to decipher the 

Ah well, the fljax version of the Engineers' Ball may be only a memory, but 
the Toronto counterpart has stepped forward to take its place. The year saw the 
staunch old R.Y. rock to the Fall Dance on October 13th, and to the Spring Dance 
on March 2nd. 


find culture? Well, we should say so! We have seen fljax culture rise this 
year to unprecedented heights! Who has heard anything more stirring than the 
heart-rending melodies of the "Four Flushers," or the complete mastery of 
musical form as exhibited by the Lady Godiva Memorial Band? 

For Skule Nite, the infamous Chariot Race, the School fit-Home, 5T1 provid- 
ed ardent supporters. In athletics, the class was in there with the rest, helping 
in School's battle for the Reed Trophy, fill in all the boys did very well; a lot 
of work, a lot of fun. We had a good year.

The Class of 5T2 

' I "HE Class of 5T2, like all the other years and organizations in S.P.S., enjoyed 
•*■ a year of consolidation, progress and plain fun. 

The two big social events of the year were the Engineers' Ball on Decembei 
7th, and the Soph Dance, March 2nd. The first was held in conjunction with the 
Class of 5T3 and the second was also a joint dance, this time with the Class of 
5T1. Both events were successful (a tradition at Skule) and recaptured some of 
the spirit of fljax House Parties, if such a thing is at all possible. 

Financially our year is in a fortunately stable position. We incurred no 
excess debts this year, and have a backlog of money to go towards the Grad 
Ball, come that glorious day. 

In general, the members of 5T2 have acquitted themselves well. Their 
spirit as a year is second to none, as evidenced by the turnouts for Skule Nite, 
the Skule At-Home, and other events. That there is abundant talent is a fact; 
the problem is to locate and harness it. It seems a pity that so many persons 
are reluctant to come to the fore, persons who could contribute a lot to Skule 
and gain valuable experience themselves. 

In conclusion, may I wish the incoming executive the best of luck, and 
hope that they will make next year a bigger and better one for 5T2.

"he Class of 5T3 

A JflX has become a fond memory and the engineers of First Year are again on 
■**■ the campus. It has been a long time since the green tie has been seen at 
the southern end of the university — along with the multitude of shining, eager 
faces, hidden behind new "T"-squares and enormous piles of newly-purchased 

Our introduction into the advanced society found at Varsity came with the 
Freshman Reception. It could be called nothing but a tremendous success. A 
magnificent job was done of importing "talent" from such places as Whitney 
Hall, O.T., and even the Little Red Skule House, and it was a party few of us will 
forget, I'm sure. 

The short period which followed, spent largely in learning the words to 
"Godiva," acquiring a shouting acquaintance with "Toike Oike," and pursuing 
the hobby of tie-collecting, was terminated by our First Year dance at the Royal 
York. Here we wore our green ties for the last time, and we were given the 
opportunity of showing certain parties just how much we had matured since 
beginning our quest for higher education. 

Just before Christmas, after an autumn of checking campus lines and curves 
through the medium of the transit, we combined with 5T2 for the Engineers' 
Ba'l. The dim lights, soft music, and attendance at morning labs the next day 
were evidence of an outstanding evening. 

The Chariot Races in January provided an unusual lunch hour for many, 
and with the wearing of our 25^ engineers' hats and the smoking of even cheaper 
cigars, we felt we had at last become Skule Men. 

It's been an enjoyable year, and 5T3 is off to a good start. We missed the 
experience of fljax, but we have been partially compensated by being the 

Freshman Class which reunited S.P.S. 








APRIL. 1950 


Limited Budget 
Enjoyed By All 

On a limited budget for 
the year 1949-50, "TOIKE 
OIKE" continued the fearless 
policy of printing all the news. 
Material was obtained from 
various sources — The Varsity 
office, The El Mocambo, Gents* 
washroom in the Skulehouse, 
and the Hart House showers. 

With the limited budget only 
eight and a half issues appear- 
ed, synchronised with important 
events around the faculty. An 
impartial po'I of the Toike Oike 
staff proved that Toike Oike 
was the most popular publica- 
tion on the campus. 

"Without the 'Toike Oike'," 
commented R. J. Fingnapple, 
"the men's washroom would be 

Midnight Oil 

Somehow, as usual, the staff 
found itself doing most of the 
work on the paper in the late 
hours. Because of the limited 
budget, much scrounging was 
necessary, considerable use be- 
ing made of old copies of the 
"Cornell Widow," the U.C.L.A. 
"Claw," the "Queen's Journal," 
and the 'Fishmonger's Gaz- 
ette." An unofficial exchange 
system was establishd with other 
publications, the "Gazette" be- 
ing obtained from Bernstine's 
Fishmarket, wrapped around 
the Science Editor's weekly had- 


The editorials were forthright 
and daring, thus earning

forthright and daring. 

The sports page gave com-

is well known in sporting 
circles, covering all jousts, 
tourneys, competitions and a 
large chair in the back room.

working night and day, suc- 
ceeded in keeping the under- 
graduates fully informed on all 
events on the campus, to the 
envy of the north campus daily. 

The hardest-working depart- 
ment of the paper was, without 
a doubt, the small group of 
feature writers who supplied 
the humour which kept the en- 
tire campus in a constant state 
of extreme hilarity. 

Although a few members of 
the staff leave the faculty, for 
one reason or another, with the 
class of 5T0, they leave behind 
a well-trained, capable, learned, 
erudite, intelligent, and witty 
group, well-equipped for the 
task of carrying on the tradi- 
tions of the "Engineers' Jour- 
nal." The best wishes of the 
departing go with them as they

Ode to "Toike Oike" 

In faith I do not love thee with mine eyes, 

For they in thee a thousand errors note, 
But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise, 

Who in despite of view is pleased to dote. 
Nor are mine ears with thine tongue's tune 

Nor tender feelings by thy writers rousing, 
Nor clumsy wit bring wish to be invited, 

To thy aid in thy low standards raising, 
But your eight wits nor Sportoike awful can, 

Dissuade one foolish heart from serving thee, 
Who leaves unswayed the likeness of a man, 

Thy proud hearts slave and vassal wretch to be: 
Only my plague thus far I count my gain, 

That that which makes me sin, awards me pain.

THE little grey booklet, wherein lies the constitution of the Engineering 
Society, has this to say regarding the purpose of the Debates Club: "The 
objects of the Debates Club shall be to help its members to learn to speak." The 
activities of the club have been directed towards this aim. 

The first debate was held in the Debates Room at Hart House, on the rather 
controversial subject, "That the Engineering and Business course be discontinued 
at Skule." A good representation from the above course came out and defeated 
the resolution, thus settling the question once and for all. 

The next debate took place at St. Michael's Senate. H. G. Feldberg and 
Jack Crossman spoke negatively on the resolution, "That Canada should adopt 
a unitary form of government." Skule was defeated, and the resolution was 
passed. The debate was an interesting one, and illustrated the familiarity of 
Skulemen with this non-Engineering topic. 

During the second term, a novel idea was developed: Professor Bagnani 
of University College delivered a series of lectures on the subject of public 
speaking and debating. These were excellent, and were well received by the 
members present. 

A debate with U.C. was held on the subject, "Resolved that a Faculty of 
Applied Science is undesirable and superfluous in any reasonable university." 
The School team of Bill Morash and Jerry Lawson defeated this resolution. A 
good-sized delegation from School was present at what is hoped by U.C. to 
become an annual event. 

Other debates are still in the planning stage. The executive feels that 
opportunity was given for its members to learn to speak.

Hart House 

"40c Lunch", by Ray Wolfe, winner of the recent Hart 
House Camera Club photo contest. 

UP until recently, there has been a tendency 
on the part of many of us who inhabit the 
southerly reaches of the campus to look upon 
the organization and committee work at Hart 
House with a certain degree of apathy, unless 
we were directly interested in, say, the Camera 
Club or the Art Committee, or the like. 

This indifference was surely swept away, 
however, when in the Spring of 1949 the Engi- 
neering faculty elected the maximum number of 
representatives to many of the committees. The 
great move "to the House" was nurtured in the 
easy-to-organize and neighbourly students' com- 
munity at fljax. 

Again this year, although with not so marked 
a participation, Skule and the professional facul- 
ties swept the Hart House elections, and demon- 
strated the will and the ability of the engineers 
to actively support their candidates. 

So that you may know the men who represent 
you at Hart House, and so that you may point 
cut with pride their apparent number, to your 
friends of the short hours and the long essays, 
we have published their names.

N.F.C.U.S. is, in a very real sense, the External Affairs Committee of the 
Students' Council. As such it has done its best to deal with many requests 
from other Universities, both in Canada and abroad. 

fit the Ottawa N.F.C.U.S. Conference the Toronto Committee was asked to 
investigate the apparently high cost of text books in Canada. A report has been 
prepared based on extensive investigation by a special group which has been 
in touch with twenty-three Canadian universities, seventeen American college 
book stores, six publishing houses, the management of the U. of T. Press, 
members of the Faculty, and the National Council of Canadian Universities. 

The N.F.C.U.S. Regional Exchange plan has received the approval of the 
university authorities. Unfortunately, the Canadian-American Exchange Plan 
was not implemented this year. However, considerable interest was shown in 
it, and it is hoped such exchanges will be brought about in the future. 

A report has been prepared on the finances, management and facilities of 
Student Unions. This report includes a brief survey of Student Union buildings 
in Canada. The 1950 brief on the proposed Student Union at Toronto has been 
incorporated into this report. 

Twenty Toronto students are going to Europe this summer with ship pas- 
sages secured by N.F.C.U.S. 

Fourteen scholarships have been assigned Toronto for the N.F.C.U.S. 
Summer Seminar. Publicity, selection and other arrangements connected with 
the seminar are being looked after by the local committee. 

Our committee has co-operated with I.S.S. to arrange an exchange of week- 
end visits between forty students of this University and an equal number from 
University of Montreal. 

We are co-operating with Queen's University and the S.A.C Radio Com- 
mittee in the establishment of a weekly student radio program, rotating among 
those universities willing to participate. 

Through teamwork, we believe that N.F.C.U.S. has fulfilled its function of 
student service both on the campus and in furthering good relations with other

Skule and the S.A.C. 

THIS year Skule has been able to play a more active role in the Students' 
Administrative Council. The increased effort began when the Engineering 
Society decided that the harrassed President and Vice-President were too busy 
to take part actively in S.A.C. affairs, and appointed, in their stead, two represen- 
tatives to act as Skule's voice on the Council. This created an opportunity to 
widen S.P.S. activity on an All-Varsity level by allowing two men of the Engin- 
eering Society to participate on Council Commissions and Committees. 

From the student societies in faculties and colleges the views of students 
are brought to the council and presented by their representatives. These views 
are discussed (more often hotly debated), and from these discussions evolves 
the governing policy for the student body. A small example will suffice: the 
heated argument on football pep-rallies resulted in a decision to curtail them, 
probably from three to two, in order that other University activities would not be 
affected to the point of their eventual disappearance from the campus. 

In all the activities of the Council, Skulemen, through their own volition, or 
introduced by the two Skule representatives, put forth their efforts to make 
the campus aware of Skule's contribution to the Varsity spirit. Early in the fall 
th's new effort began with the organization of the afore-mentioned pep rallies. 
Don McParland, II S.P.S., handled the Queen's rally and John Bahen, II S.P.S., 
did the work on the Western and McGill Friday evening festivals. 

John K. Armour, III S.P.S. , and the Skule S.A.C. reps did a great deal of 
"research" in the autumn, to determine who had the necessary qualifications to 
be the 1949-50 cheerleaders. The difficulties of this arduous task were further in- 
creased by the hoarse whispers of some members of the selection committee 
who kept asking for more cartwheels! 

Brian Judges, III S.P.S., looked after the arrangements with Hart House 
for some of the Roam-Around Dances. So many Skulemen turned out for these 
affairs that the Warden would like to express his thanks to them for their 
consideration in leaving the buildings upright for next year's events! 

Then there was the Homecoming Parade. If you were able to walk and 
hold a slide rule you were eligible for the Skule entry. Some of the boys of 


unquestionable skill were able to manufacture a brew on one float during the 
parade. Under the guiding hand of Chief Cannoneer Paul LaPrairie, Skule 
placed second in this free-style, ncn-handicap event. The parade this year was 
organized and run by Barny Warren, IV Civil, and Dave Hughson, III Eng. <S 
Bus. They are to be congratulated for their very effective job in making this 
the best parade to date. The committee was more than moderately pleased to 
see all floats still around at the finish. 

As was to be expected, the monstrous placard display at the game that after- 
noon was a product of the drafting boards down at Skule. Bill Sixt, III S.P.S., 
ran that show. By the time we all regained consciousness, after the 7-0 victory- 
over the Purple and White, everybody was at Convocation Hall watching the 
"Blue and White Review." Doug Keen, III S.P.S., was the producer. The "Four 
Flushers," and Brent Rowe, IV S.P.S., with his boys, kept the audience acutely 
conscious of the Engineers. No one was more surprised than the management 
when this show, which had been assembled in about a week, turned out to be 
the hit of the Homecoming Week-end. With the highlights of last year's enter- 
tainment as its composition, the "Review" was adjudged by the grads and 
critics as the best campus production of its type to ever come over to old Varsity. 

A Skule representative was elected to the post of Athletic Commissioner to 
represent the student body on the Ahletic Directorate. This organization is 
responsible for the physical training programs, for the control and direction of all 
athlet'cs in Hart House, for the management of the athletic grounds, and for 
the supervision of the University Athletic Clubs and disposal of their funds. It 
also handles such knotty problems as the approval of the new stadium and, 
what is perhaps paramount to students, the number of new seats that- will be 
allocated for improved student seating next year. 

These glimpses into the Blue and White Society and the Athletic Directorate 
will give you some idea of the major contribution that Skule has made outside 
cf its own red brick walls. 

In closing this report to you on the activities of the Students' Administrative 
Council as they concern Skule, we would like to remind you that there are yet 
other contributors from the little Red Citadel who remain unsung. We have 
Skulemen in the Blue and White Band, the All-Varsity Review, the Symphony 
Orchestra and the Pipe Band. The last mentioned groups 
are by and large connected with the S.A.C. 

We would like to thank you for the willing co-opera- 
tion that we have received all year in our attempts to co- 
relate the activities of Skule with those of the University. 
We sincerely believe that this action is beneficial and 
necessary and can best be accomplished through the 
Council. To paraphrase slightly — there is nothing like a 
Skuleman but being a Varsityman helps.

Herewith, the First Vice-President's Report: 

On Horsemeat and Heart 

wUPINE at Sunnybrook, a man has ample time to contemplate, and he 
should be capable of consecutive thought. Nevertheless, in retrospect, 
the year's activities, though they did occur in chronological order, seem like 
a gallivanting of the mind. And that could be more substance than fantasy, 
too, for ever since Skule Nite 5T0 my frontal cranial lobe has behaved much 
like a misplaced haggis! 

Well ragout or not the bowl is hot; and, floating around amid the steam- 
ing jetsom and flotsam of bruised brain, lesioned lung, and K.C.R. kidney, I 
observe two especially large and wholesome morsels — one of horsemeat; the 
other, heart. But you can't eat them, Elmer; they're not like ice cream. 
The horsemeat is team work, and the heart is esprit de coeur — better known 
as Skule Spirit. They are intangibles. They have neither genus nor species. 
But just try to abstract them from the hodge-podge and its tang disappears; 
the nourishment is gone. Just try to throw a Skule Function without them 
and you are licked before you start. 

These two great characteristics of Skulemen are the greatest reasons 
why Engineering Society Functions are perennially outstanding successes, 
just as the lack of the same characteristics causes the downfall of the so-called 
ill-fated affairs of the fine-haired citizens to the north. 

Of course, high-class, top-level planning and imagination are prerequis- 
ites among executive committees, but without the co-operation and spirit, re- 
sourcefulness and ideas, skill and strong backs of prop men, stage hands, 
actors, decorations men, technicians, accommodation men and the scores of 
others who pitch in to help, no committee or chairman could operate. 

It would be imprudent to try listing the Skulemen who have assisted 
directly or indirectly with Engineering Society Functions this year. There 
is no clear cut line of demarcation between the categories of casual assistance 
and complete, all-out, selfless devotion. The people listed on the pro- 
grammes devised for different affairs constitute a heavy roster, but still fall 
far short of including all hands. 

Some of these will receive Leather Medals or Gold Keys when they 
graduate, as an appreciative gesture by the Engineering Society. Others 
may wonder why they haven't been included. We have done our damndest 
to segregate the worthy from the most-worthy, since there aren't enough 
decorations to go around. Knowing that real engineers make their contribu- 
tions to Skule for Skule and not for acquisition of personal advantage, we 
expect no childish emotion or selfish whining as a result of our selections. 

We promised plenty of fire and superior functions in the first issue of 
"Toike Oike" this year, and with the aid of the aforementioned spirit and 
Team Work, we have delivered in no uncertain manner. School Dinner 
and Smoker was an outstanding success. Skule Nite has spoken for itself 


but, for the odds and sods who failed 
to see it, there are numerous letters 
on file at the Stores hailing the pro- 
duction as the best campus show yet. 
Skule At-Home, 'though reduced to 
half-charge at the outset by the lack 
of likker, was jazzed up by a few extra 
licks of lacquer, and went off with a 
tremendous report. In addition, we 
shant easily forget the rip-roaring 
Chariot Race, the Auction Sale, and 
the advent of the New Skule Cannon 
— all monumental milestones to be 
added to Skule's long and notorious 

A green First- Vice may very well 
contemplate in sheer awe the task 
involved in planning and directing the 
year's events. But there is this to be 
said as consolation to the tyro: that an 
unlimited supply of natural resource 
exists in Skulemen, and, once a pro- 
ject catches fire, all hell will never stop 
it. His task, then, is straight, un- 
adulterated engineering, exactly as de- 
fined by Dean Young — "to harness 
the existing forces of nature and to 
direct them to the required ends." 

To the new First-Vice, Bruce Mairs, 
I extend my heartiest congratulations 
and best wishes. He will have no bed 
of roses — but then, who wants to 
smell like an Artsman? 

Well, the broth stews away in my 
noggin and the ingredients look better 
all the time. Guess I'll just shove the 
pot over to the back of the stove where 
it can simmer away until next year. 
Perhaps the new Executive walking by 
will catch the heady aroma and be 
tempted to dip in and sample the soul- 
satisfying wholesomeness of Horse- 
meat and Heart. 

Excuse me. Nurse wants to give 
me another back-rub. Aren't you 

Good luck.

Since the Fall of '49 Dave Davis had been gathering around 
him an able committee, which produced for not far from a 
thousand couples, elegantly attired in white tie, tails, and long 
dresses, what was perhaps the biggest and best dance ever 
held at Varsity. About six floors of the R.Y. were booked solid 
by Tangent McSliderule's from New York, Roger Fingnapple's 
from Chicago, and fintoine Paradis de Montreal. 

Chicken dinner, toasts with Bright's, slide-rule favours, 
carnations, two stupendous murals, the presentation of keys 
and medals, Mart Kenny, Boyd Valleau, Doug Romaine, the 
Golden Gate Quartette — were all included among the high- 
lights of the evening. 

The dance ended at two officially, but many were seen 
stumbling around the vicinity of St. George St. in their penguin 
suits anytime up until noon, March 11th. Nobody wanted to 
go home. 

Dave Davis and Wally Diakow, along with the rest of the 
committee certainly deserve carloads of credit for one smash 
evening which will never be forgotten.

1949-1950 Athletics ! — the last of the era of the "Old Men." 

What a glorious time it has been. Up till now you could tell the hockey 
players by their lack of hair, and a football player could kiss any girl he pleased 
because she was probably his wife; and when some of the frosh addressed 
a member of 5T0 as "pop" it might even be the truth. 

But looks can be deceiving. In the past seven months the inhabitants 
of the red brick building have set an enviable record in the field of Athletics. 
At the time of writing the race for that trophy of all trophies — the T. A. Reed — 
emblematic of overall Interfaculty supremacy, is nip and tuck with the tea-cup 
boys from the north side of Hoskin. Whether Skule gets a first, second or third 
shot is not nearly so important as the fact that about one out of every four School- 
men played on one or more of the 60 odd teams under the Engineers' banner. 

The Executive sincerely hopes that all the bright and shining faces which 
appear on the following pages really enjoyed themselves and got a kick out of 
participating. Many of the faces will be absent next year, but their record will 
always be a part of the history of Varsity and of Skule. 

To those who will again appear on these pages and to those who will be 
added in years to come, we hope you have as much fun as we have had and 
that you add even greater laurels to those already hanging in the hall of the 

Here's to "49-50," one of the best yet; to Rod MacLennan and his gang for 
next year, may it be an even greater one.

Special Award Bronze S 

Dave Barr, 
Special Bronze "S" 

T~\AVE BARR, called "Ditz" by fellow sports and competitors alike, is the proud 
and worthy recipient of the most-treasured athletic award of the graduating 
class — the Special Bronze "S". Amassing some eighty-odd points in athletics, 
he topped his nearest competitor, one Chris Arnold, by close to twenty points, 
(with no aspersions intended toward Mr. Arnold's fine record). 

Dave's specialty is running, especially in the longer distances. He has been 
firmly entrenched on the Intercollegiate Harrier teams during his term of 
servitude, helping immensely towards Varsity's champion squads of the past 
years. In addition, Dave has set some enviable records in Interfaculty com- 
petition, leading his Skulemates to several decisive wins at both outdoor and 
indoor meets. This year he set a 4:29 record for the mile on the Hart House 
track, which is some going, as the track is short and not too well constructed. 

In addition to his contributions in the actual competitions, Ditz has been in 
charge of S.P.S. track for the past year, and has organized a highly efficient and 
winning squad. Through his efforts, the Skulemen are sure to wind up very 
near the top in the year-long track meets, with many, many Reed Trophy points 
as a reward. Ditz has certainly earned his award, and all Skule wishes him as 
much luck in the cold, cold outside world as he has had. in his days at School.

Trophies and Awards 

WITH THE plethora of trophies unemployed this year, the various donors 
had to do a little thinking to apply them properly. Being true-blue 
ex-Skulemen, they had no difficulty, with the result that everyone is pleased, 
especially the following gentlemen: 

Johnny Riddell, "Mr. Lummox" of the Jr. S.P.S. football team, was voted 
by his team-mates as the most likely to get the Barber Trophy as the outstanding 
player on the team. Bulwark of the front wall, both on de- and offensive, big 
John was a very hard boy to go through, as so many of the opposing 
backfielders found. Whenever a plunge was called through the hole he 
made, you could have driven a herd of elephants through the gaping breech. 
On top of his hard-rock prowess, John proved to be one of the most sports- 
manlike of the interfaculty players, in spite of the fact that he was a target 
for some pretty grim tactics. Skule is looking forward to Johnny as the 
bulwark of future Mulock Cup Squads. 

Bobby "Flash" fldare was voted the Phene Memorial Trophy by the 

members of the Senior Football team. After watching nothing but Bob's heels 
for many a game, it would be a sure bet that the lowly flrtsman opposition 
would concur unanimously. Knifing through a mass of tacklers, twisting and 
turning on runbacks, or plowing through a veritable mass of burly linemen 
on an off-tackle slash, Bob proved to be one of the real stars of the backfield, 
and had a lot to do with getting Skule into the finals. The only regret the 
team has is that he won't be back next year, for Bob passes out via the Eng. 
Phys. way this June. 

Something new has been added! The coveted Gilley Trophy, which has 
been transplanted from fijax to Toronto with the approval of its donor, Mr. 
J. Roy Gilley, will be awarded from now on to the outstanding athlete of the 
Freshman year. 

Happy-go-lucky John Prendergast is the proud recipient of the initial 
award, and most deserving of it, too. A star performer with the Junior Skule 
football and hockey squads, John is well liked by his teammates for his 
persistent good humour and sportsmanship; so much so, in fact, that they 
have nicknamed him CENSORED. 

In addition, hi's classmates have elected him to the Athletic Executive 
as a year "rep." Big things seem to be in store for Johnnie, for he is destined 
to be a leader in future S.P.S. athletics. Keep up the good work, "T-fl," and 
watch out for guys like Bob Masterson who will no doubt try to lure you out 
of the Skule fold.

THE fall of 1949 brought another powerful Senior Skule football team to the 
campus. Despite a slow start, hard work and cooperation by all concerned 
produced a smooth, fighting team, most noted for its hard-driving spirit and 
clean sportsmanship. 

Skule's solid front line, consisting of Norm Firth, Doug. Keen, Mac. McColm, 
John MacDonald, John Rickaby, Ken Dellenbach, John Gordon, Bill Lumsden, 
Pete Phemister, Bob Richards, and Al. Watson, broke up many an opponent's 
play as well as opening gaping holes for star plungers John Folinsbee, Bob 
Brown, Al. Scott, Jack Jones, and Tom Crandel. Fleet Bob Adare showed his 
heels to the opposing team many a time on long end runs, and George Babcock, 
Jim Britnell, Roy Helland, and Cliff James spearheaded several plays. 

Because of injuries which kept capable quarterbacks Walt Gibson and John 
MacKendrick out of games for most of the season, the quarterbacking duties 
fell on Paul Valenti, who displayed a keen sense of good field generalship. His 
"dead-eye" passing to such capable receivers as Captain Brent Rowe, Gord 
Cole, and Gord Wood, brought many substantial gains. Several injuries on the 
team obliged Coach Ted Weaver to fill in the vacant spots, where he showed his 
ability, particularly on long "quarterback sneaks." Fine kicking on the part of 
John Folinsbee and Al. Scott was the best in the league. 

The season opened with a 2-1 victory over Skule's perennial rivals, Meds I. 
However, the taste of defeat came early with a 7-0 blast from Vic. The next two 
games found Senior Skule on top with decisive 5-3 and 14-6 victories over U.C. 
and Meds I. Once again Vic proved to be the stumbling block with a 13-3 
defeat. The "never-say-die" spirit of the Engineers found expression in a 13-5 
rout of U.C. in the final league game. In the semi-final playoffs the team dis- 
played its best game of the season with a well-earned win of 15-2 over St. Mike's, 
which brought on the final playoff against Vic, for the Mulock Cup. Once again 
the "old jinx" struck, to let Vic cart away the cup after a hard-fought game. 

Last, but not least, a vote of thanks to the man behina the scenes, Mike 
Bishop, to whom the "Joe-jobs" and managerial duties fell.

THE 1949 football season did much to confirm the view that some of the best 
and most exciting football is played in the Interfaculty League. The Junior 
Team went through a season of close games that would have been difficult to 

After being defeated by Skule in the first encounter, St. Mike's came back in 
the second game to force a playoff. There is still no explanation forthcoming 
for that second game, in which Junior School was swamped, except that the 
boys must have had an off day. The third and deciding game was lost by Skule 
by such a narrow margin that a protest was upheld, which caused a replay. 
As usual, even in the replay, the two teams were so close that overtime was 
necessary, in which Junior School lost to St. Mike's by one narrow point, and 
were thus forced out of the series. The many Skulemen who saw that final game 
seemed to think that the Junior team should have won. 

Dave Munro, coach of the Juniors, is to be commended on the fine job he 
did. Time was short, and he had a large task in organizing the team to make a 
showing. There was perhaps the largest turnout of potential Junior players in 
history at the beginning of the year, but by the end of the season it was scarcely 
possible to dress a full quota of players for each game. 

Captain John Riddell, Jack Grinton, and Bill Wansborough played well on 
the line in spite of injuries. Lome Slattery, Ed. Fleury, Doug. Campbell, Howard 
Greenly, Harry Hotchkiss and the others made up the rest of the line, which gave 
a good performance. Karl Snider was invaluable as quarterback, and on several 
occasions enabled the team to make large advances at important times. The 
backfield men — Keith Mowat, Dave Brown, Roy Carr, Dave Pullan, John Prender- 
gast, Don Bush and the others — were all valuable and played very well all 
season. Bob Neff and Bob Spencer joined the team part way through the season 
but made up for lost time with their spectacular and valuable playing. 

The entire team was made up of a group of good athletes and equally good 
fellows. I know we are all looking forward to better progress next year.

/~\OPS! Slipped out of our hands— the Arts Faculty Cup, that is. The 

greatest contributing factor to our butter-fingers was probably the fact that 

we had a fairly tight school schedule and couldn't afford much time for practices. 

What happened to that championship team that took the cup in 1947-48? 
Senior Skule was then Junior Skule and the soccer champions. Ted Evans, 
Jim Wotherspoon and Ted Marcun were taken into the Senior Blue Team. 
Others had left Skule, were still playing with the Juniors, or were not playing 
at all. The remnants, John Comrie, Reny Barki, Lang Moffatt, George Takata 
and Norm Patterson were active on the team. 

In spite of all our "troubles," we gave a fairly good showing, as our scores 
indicate. The team lost 4 games and won 2. Goals scored — 5; goals against — 
7. This is a fairly good indication of the team's strength. 

Our forwards, Moffatt, Comrie, Rijabert, Colquhoun, Blom, Vooton and 
Takata, were strong in their attacks but just couldn't place the pill in the right 
spot. Patterson, Arnold and Bowden played a formidable game on the defence. 

On the whole, though the team did not win the cup, it played good clean 
soccer and gave an excellent account of itself.

HE Junior Skule eleven was again this year a strong contender in the 
campus soccer circuit. 

A light, fast-breaking team, sparked by the passing plays of Atucha and 
Dos Santos and the footwork of Jessop, gained S.P.S. the first spot in Group II. 
With only a 3-2 loss to Meds and a scoreless tie with St. Mike's in a six game 
total to mar their record, our boys went into the playoffs for the Arts Faculty Cup. 

The first game in the semi-finals against Victoria was fought in a sea of mud, 
and the superb kicking of Armstrong and Lee on the back line and Willie Clark 
in goal saved the team in several slippery scrimmages. After twenty minutes' 
overtime the match ended in a one-all tie, and a replay had to be held. The 
replay was never in doubt, and the old warrior Franco scored two goals to down 
the Scarlet and Gold. 

The cup final against Trinity found our team tired from the battles against 
Vic and without Tommy Anderson, who was injured in the semi-finals. The 
boys, sparked by Capt. Ole Freele and his half line, fought valiantly, but were 
overwhelmed by the heavier team, ending on the wrong end of a 2-0 score. 
This dashed Skule's hopes for this year, but we hope for better luck in 1951.

This year the competition was really 
keen, and Sr. School, with only Sawyer 
and Pilgrim left from last year's squad, 
just didn't have the - experience shown 
by U.C., Meds, and Vic. 

After three close losses, Patrick, the 
goalie, from the Jr.'s, was brought up 
to replace Waxman. Waxman was then 
shifted to defence to give Prescott a 
breather, and to strengthen this weak 
spot. With this change School won 
8-4 from the leading U.C. squad in a 
very close-checking game. 

Sawyer and Pilgrim were the "big 
guns" up front, with Mainprize and Mc- 
Kay also potting in a good share of 
goals. McColm, Roberts, and Warren 
filled out the team.

Lacrosse I ! 

The Lacrosse Seconds won a game 
from VIC II, and with just a little luck 
(everybody hates School) should have 
won some of the close ones. 

Bruce Pilgrim was "appointed" Coach 
just before the first game, and he hasti- 
ly scraped together a team built around 
the veterans Orrel and Ham, with Mc- 
Knight on defence. Bruce had just had 
Muff. Patrick trained as a goalie when 
the Seniors "stole" him and we had to 
start again with Pete Petcoff. 

After watching O'Donaghue (he threw 
away fistfuis of hair) and most of the 
others either hit the goal-pads or miss 
the net on 9 out of 10 tries, Bruce trained 
the boys to be the best defensive team 
in the group. Low, with 7 goals, was 
top scorer.

The Outdoor Seniors 

BOTH U.C. and Vic ambushed the Sciencemen in this rugged afternoon's 
work, the former winning comfortably with 66 points, Vic in second spot 
with 35, and Skule trailing at 19. 

Kofmel and Smith gained first spots for our side in the 440 and high 
jumps, while Ditz Barr and Webster placed second in the three mile and mile 
grinds. Bob Adare and the relay team knocked off third places in the 220-yard 
low hurdles and mile events, to round out the total. 'Twasn't a bad afternoon's 
work, at all, for the competition was really stiff, and trying to consume your 
daily forty is not exactly conducive to expert conditioning. 

The Outdoor Juniors 

IT SEEMS that Skulemen of 1949-50 are destined to end up second to U.C 
*■ in all too many events. When the final points of the Junior Track were 
added up, there they were, second to the Artsmen by 47-27. Webster and 
Evans, in copping win and place spots in the mile, and Foster, hurling a 
javelin a mighty long distance, accounted for a good half of Skule's points. 

The others, however, did not exactly sit back and watch the world go 
by. Wigle took second in the pole vault, and Armstrong and Foster placed 
high in the shot put. Again, Webster and mate Fee took third and fourth 
slots in the half-mile. Fee and Foster rounded out the point total with placings 
in the running broad jump and discus. Not too bad a showing, considering 
the quality of the Arts opposition, and mighty good if you remember that most 
of the boys will be back next year, improved and ready to grab the big money, 
not being satisfied with second places. 

The Indoor Types 

GOODNESS, gracious, how close can you get? After slugging along very 
unobtrusively for most of the season, picking up a couple of points here, 
and a few placings there, this session's version of the indoor track squad 
suddenly started sweeping everything in sight, and just before the final meet 
were a mere one-half point behind St. Mikes for the champeenship. This 
hot Skule (pure, not beery, for these types are Athletes) breath cheesed the 
Double Blue no end. 

It was a tough race, but when the smoke cleared, SMC was still in there, 
by that infinitesimal half point. So that is that. The team was supported ably 
by the old faithfuls: Ditz Barr, Kofmel, Fee, Webster, Bob Adare, Leon Smith, 
Walt "Wiggle" Wigle and Bill Hart. They had a good season, setting a few 
neat records, and trying hard all the way, but the boys from the far East just 
had a bit more steam. 



AFTER coming progressively closer to it during the past three years, the 
Harrier Team has finally won both the Junior and Senior Championships. 
With most of last year's winning Junior team back again, the boys had little 
trouble, and placed seven entrants in the first fifteen. Special credit goes to 
Green, Gray and Findlay, but the team as a whole ran very well, Arnott, Hart, 
Gilbert and Hoskine were the other members of the Junior team. 

The Senior team lived up to advance expectations, and with such stars as 
Barr and Webster, added to Green, Findlay, Hoskine and Hart from the Junior 
team, it ran the opposition ragged, winning the championship and the cup. 

Congratulations, fellows; here's hoping for a repeat performance next year. 




IT should be the cause of some embarrassment to the other faculties to find 
that the entire Senior Varsity Golf Team was made up of Skulemen: Dave 
Greey, Charlie Pawanel, George Smalley and Hugh Watson. Don Grant was 
the lone representative on the Intermediate Golf Squad. 

A look at the Interfaculty Golf and we find that S.P.S. again won all the 
laurels in a very convincing fashion. Bill Tarasick took individual honours with 
a fine score of 75. The foursome of Tarasick, Lafontaine, Smith and Booth walked 
off with the low team score to give Skule a clean sweep for the day's play o'er 
the "velvety green" fairways of St. Andrew's. 

Not to be content with this display, the Athletic Association very success- 
fully inaugurated an indoor Golf School during the fall term, under the expert 
tutelage of Gordon Delaat, pro at the Weston Golf Club in Toronto. From all 
reports, those chaps who attended the course received much benefit from the 
instruction, and had warm praise for the project. It is to be hoped that in the 
light of this success, the experiment will be carried on in the future, with a view 
to extending the school to include eventually the remainder of the University.

First Swim Team 

' I 'HIS year, though many members of the swimming team were also playing 
other sports, Senior Skule managed to win her group without losing a single 
meet. In the semi-finals Forestry was easily ousted, leaving only a strong 
U.C.-P.H.E. team between Skule and the championship. The final meet with 
U.C. was a hard-fought one with Skule coming out on top; however, the meet 
was protested by U.C. and scheduled to be reswum, on very short notice. Un- 
fortunately, only five were able to turn out for this rematch and Skule went 
down to defeat. 

This year's team was made up of Freeth, Dereck, Walton and Beatty, swim- 
ming free style; Art Freeman and Hugh Sutherland swimming back stroke; and 
Norris Bowden and Johnson swimming breast stroke.

SENIOR School made a slow start this year, but things changed in the second 
round and the final picture showed School two points behind the group 
leader, and in the playoffs. 

After we walked over Knox in the first game, School's chances for the 
Jennings Cup were ended by Trinity in a real thriller. The Senior squad came 
from behind the wrong end of a 2-0 count on goals by Patterson, Crandell and 
MacRay; but, in the dying seconds, Trinity tied it up. Then in the overtime 
period, Trinity knocked in a quick goal. How close can you get? 

Looking at the line-up, it's hard to believe that we ever lost a game. Sawyer, 
MacKay and Coates came to us from last year's Jennings Cup team and sparked 
the boys all through the season. Sawyer performed double duty, acting as 
coach in addition to claiming the honour of being the team's top scorer. 

The hard luck trophy goes to Joe Furrow, who received a leg injury in the 
middle of the schedule and was lost to us for the rest of the year; Hard-hitting 
Bob Hookings very ably filled Joe's position on defence for the rest of the year, 
beside Don Grant. 

Bob McKnight kept his glasses clean and had a good season in goal, fis 
well as two shut-outs, he averaged only two pucks behind him per game. 

The trio of Sinclair, Coates and MacKay improved as the season progressed, 
and after hitting their stride they turned in a good share of the goals. They 
were the fastest-breaking and hardest-shooting line on the ice, and anyone who 
saw them in action will remember a few beautiful tallies, particularly one by 
Hubie when he skated rings around the opposition — and placed the puck in 
the net. 

Even though we didn't make the grade for the Jennings Cup, we had a 
lot of fun trying, and if future School teams can combine the spirit of this year's 
team with the cup, they will have an unbeatable combination. Better luck next

many difficult shots. George Smith also put on a brilliant display of puck-

Hockey Fourths 

THIS Skule team threatened the supremacy of the senior teams by con- 
vincingly winning its group without being defeated or tied in the regular 
season. Led by the high scoring trio of Mustard, Stirling and Colquhoun, and 
supported by the fine defensive work of Jenner, McCellan and team captain 
Johnny McLean, the team easily crushed all group IV opposition to advance 
into the playoffs. 

However, fate struck a cruel blow, and the team drew St. Mike's "A" team 
as opposition in the first round of the playoffs. Depending on capable, all-round 
players such as Workman and Marshall and on the fighting spirit of Cole and 
Kaiser, the team set out to beat St. Mike's. Again fate stepped in. The one and 
only severe snowstorm of the season stranded McCellan in the suburbs, and 
the team had to depend on three defencemen only — Woods, McLaren and 
Armstrong — for the whole game. During the game "Ropey" Jenner received a 
severe cut over the eye which, with poor officiating, hampered the team's 
chances. However, the boys fought bitterly, the score remaining 2-1 until 
the last few minutes. The team tired and St. Mike's won 5-1. 

A lot of credit belongs to goalie "Johnny" Piatt, who never quit, always 
encouraging and helping the players. Certainly a word of praise goes to alter- 
nate goalie Phillips, team manager Gord Barratt, and Jack Lim for their hard 


No, we didn't win the Jennings Cup this year, but watch out for us next year; 
we will be back fighting again for sure. We held up our end for Skule and had 
fun doing it, and that's what counts. Skule IV has had some fine teams in its 
long history, but never a finer bunch of fellows or a better team spirit than with 
this year's group. 




Hockey III 

Fourth Year carried School Colours in Hockey as S.P.S. Ill, and as a team, 
managed to beat the only Arts entry in their group, U.C. Ill, on both occasions. 

Dents "A" and Forestry "A" presented more opposition than the boys 
could cope with, and as a result they went down fighting to keep the score 
reasonable, when meeting these entries. 

The lines were continually shifted in an attempt to get a winning combina- 
tion, and Coach Joe Furrow seemed to be on the verge of obtaining such when 
he was hospitalized by an injury received while playing with Senior S.P.S. 

Dyment, Huggard and Voss pressed on the attack every time out, and 
Richards performed well on defence. Mackie came up with some spectacular 
saves even with three men in on top of him. Jeffries, Goodkey, Barnes and 
Siberry helped to make things difficult for the opposition. 

What the boys lacked in conditioning, they made up in spirit. 



Hockey V 

Here they are: the 1949-50 version of S.P.S. V. In our collection of wins, 
losses and ties, we have, with the help of Forestry B, the first 0-0 tie in Intramural 
Hockey in two years. 

Up front, Gill, Morrish and Zaruby carried the mail, spelled off by Smith, 
Chowan, Munford and Sine. The blue line was patrolled by Bristil, McGill 
and Marshall, our playing coach. Petcoff played a rugged defensive game, 
while on occasions exercising his boxing ability. 

From our "mentor of the cage," Gord Cridland, down through the team, we 
all agree that it was good clean fun and that even our little effort helped Skule's 
tally in the Reed Trophy race. 

We may not have been the pride of S.P.S., but just wait until next year!

Hockey VI 

Hockey is over, and there's next year and all that. So we didn't make the 
playoffs — but we had fun; and remember, fellows, we can always fall back on 
the well-known "We wuz robbed." 

Al Bowler, Ken Jessop and Jack Whittaker, headed the forward lines, and 
Ken Martin, Bill Kirkpatrick, Bill Johnson, and Paul Creenan made up the de- 
fence. Dave MacKay, George "The Hat" Hayman, Ken Smith, George Norman, 
and Teuvo "Whip" Eloranto ended up the season as our other forward lines. 

Finally comes our boy Stan Kopera, the goalie — brave soul. Good job, 
Stan; you certainly deserved that shut-out. George Norman coached the boys 
and doubled on the forward line as the need arose. 

Next year maybe we'll get sticks to play with before the schedule ends. 


Hockey VII 

The S.P.S. VII's ended the season one point out of a playoff spot in 
group eight, by way of three wins, two ties, and a single loss, for a total of eight 

The team finished the season with Wally Angus, Jack Cooper and Dave 
McAlhone as the first line, with Harry Cook and Don Little backing them up on 
defence. Keith Mowatt, Marv White, Dave McGeorge, Bart Thomson, Bill 
Robertson, and R. McTavish formed the other two lines, while Jake Mollenhauer 
and Rodge Brownlee rounded off a good team as the other defence. 

Alex Bull played a terrific game in goal, earning one shutout but deserving 
more. Al Maclnnis, our able Coach, did a good job behind the boards. 

We won't go down in history, but the fellows who played on the S.P.S. VII's 
will remember 1950 for a long time. 




SAY, maybe the rest of the University is right! If you look at the results of 
the various boxing meets around these parts, the Engineers do seem to be 
the roughest, toughest characters in sight. The Skule team just took about 
everything in sight, including the Senior Assaults and a goodly proportion of 
the Intercollegiate bouts. 

Skulemen seemed to be more proficient in the heavier weights, from about 
147 up. R. Couceiro, our Latin American punchacho, was quite definite with 
his intentions, and ended up as 147 Intercollegiate champ. Accompanying him 
in the winners' circle of Intercollegiate champs were Pete Petcoff, W. D. Arm- 
strong and Rod McLennan in the 155, 165 and heavyweight classes. Norm 
Green and John Folinsbee were edged out by very slight margins in the same 

In the Interfaculty loop, H. Greenley, Don Hogarth and G. Else made their 
punches felt, and laid low many of the opposition in helping Skule on to its 
"NTH" title in the squared ring sport. 


C'MPHASIZING the fact that the dirty ol' Skulemen can lick anyone on the 
-■ — ' campus, this session's grunt and groan grampuses almost walked off 
unopposed with the interfaculty squirm teetul. There was, however, some 
firm objection by some lowly U.C.'ers who insisted on sharing the honours 
with their superior brethren from the South. 

Paced by Intercollegiate boys Leon Smith and Jack Kirkup, with Pete 
Samuels in the pachydermous position, the team was forced to a tie by U.C. 
in the Senior meet, but the boys are out for revenge next year, when several 
of the neophytes will have the necessary experience to pin anyone in sight, 
but rapidly.

Senior Skule, with five holdovers 
from previous championship teams as 
a nucleus for this year's team, fought 
desperately to stay in the running, but 
we were finally nosed out at the end of 
the season. In spite of the fact that we 
did not reach the playoffs, Senior Skule's 
record was quite commendable, as we 
were placed in the toughest league, 
alongside the eventual finalists, Meds 
and Sr. U.C. 

Ramming the ball down the oppon- 
ents' throats were such mainstays as 
Casey Latinovitch, Julie Hanson, Leible 
Temkin and Jim Moran. The all-import- 
ant part of "setting up" was handled 
ably by Hersch Fogel, Tom Matsui and

THIS year's soak session is over and, alas, we are winless. There shall be 
no salt water in the Hart House pool however, at least not from the blood- 
shot U.C-gouged eyes of the first team. 

We had lots of Skule spirit in there and not quite enough W.P. clues. Chris 
"Barracuda" Arnold fronted the squad superbly and had everybody else on the 
club as wingers and defence at various times. Wes "The Dolphin" Dolson and 
Heinz "Fish Feet" Feldberg played a crafty defence. In the eel department 
were: Mark "The Marlin" Nagata, Ian "Codfish" Cameron, "Wiggles" Walton 
and Mike Beatty. 

Barney "Win A Game Guys" Warren was out to view the crew at every 
test and gave much needed support (nobody wore suits) to "Doubtful" Davis 
and "Hardly" Harvey Pickford. A word must be worked in favour of "Lunch 
Hooks" Sutherland, who guarded goal for the suffering seven; he did well.

however, we predict big things in the dip and drip department for the bold of

Tradition has it that water should be abhorrent to an engineer, who knows 
that the only good use for water is making beer. But our goalie, Gord Hunter, 
claims he drank more water during those six games than he ever drank beer, 
and doubtless this demoralizing effect was duplicated in the rest of the team, 
because we never quite managed to win a game. 

Starting as a rather ragged group, most of whom had never played before, 
the boys developed into a fighting team that never gave up trying. Our two 
First Year men, Graeme Dimock and Ron Klock, should be able to carry this ex- 
perience into future years. 

We had a grand time anyway. DON STRUTHERS.

The gallant Thirds were grouped this year in a league with Meds III, For- 
estry, U.C. Ill and Trinity A. Our record on the score sheet was second to 
none while our wins matched even those of the First and Seconds. What a 

Each man was a star. At forward we had Don Cullingham, John Otton, John 
McPherson and Bill Robertson, while at centre and rover Bruce Cameron and 
Fred Hull set the pace. Our defence was anchored by Dave Pullan, Stan 
Thompson, Don Crawford and Earl Scott. Daryl Berry, our human fish, was 
valuable as an all-round alternate. In front of the twines, "Nails" Horth and 
Roomie Bryce displayed top form in keeping the net clear at irregular intervals. 

Anyhow it sure was a lot of fun and the terrific spirit shown by the team in 
turning out regularly for practices and games, all goes to show you "In Water 
Polo, it's the game that counts." 



In the six-game schedule there were two wins, one tie and three losses. 
In the games lost, close scores indicated a decided tightness of play. The 
greater portion of the players were inexperienced, but shaped up rapidly to 
the point where the last game was won by good team play. Art Freeman, 
Alec Bull and George Defosse were the high scaring forwards, while Wally 
Angus was effective as rover. The opposition found Norm Firth and Tom Neil 
formed a fair defence and Bob Gladding guarded the twine quite efficiently. 
All of these boys are in First or Second year, which means that in the near 
future Skule will have a real force in the Water Polo league.

I 'HE year 1950 appears to be another year in which S.P.S. will dominate the 
-*■ Intramural Major Basketball League. This year's senior team had as its 
nucleus eight players who were on the championship Ajax teams of 1947-1948. 
Added to this were Ross Pierce and Laurie Braithewaite of last year's Ajax team, 
and "Jolting John" Chorostecki, a stalwart guard who played outstanding foot- 
ball with the ill-fated Blues last fall. 

Casey Latinovich and Bob Pogontcheff again were the defensive backbone 
of the team, Casey playing full time in many games. Walt Wigle, Don Gregory, 
Eud Willsie and Ross Pierce comprised the forward line, with Harry Wilson and 
Braithewaite sharing the pivot spot. Jim Moran, Buck Buchanan and Choro- 
stecki played splendid ball, coming through with baskets at crucial moments. 

Although the boys lost two league games to U.C., they finished in first place 
in their group, winning all other games. In the first play-off game they simply 
outran a fast Dents "A" team to walk off with a 36-27 victory. In their first game 
against Sr. Vic, the boys chalked up a 35-11 victory, in which Vic scored only 
one field goal. Another thrilling game was the last one with St. Mike's, in which 
Skule emerged victorious 25-24 by dint of Don Gregory's basket with seven 
seconds left to play. 

Probably the deciding factor in Sr. Skule's success was the superb coach- 
ing received. Pat Sheehan, an old friend of S.P.S. , devoted many hours of his 
valuable time to come out to the games and drill the boys in practice. On be- 
half of all the players on the team, I should like to express our sincere thanks to 
him for his untiring efforts in making S.P.S. another championship squad.

JUNIOR S.P.S. Coach, Mike Furlong, really had a difficult task before him 
in selecting the team for the '50 season from the more than seventy eager 
Skulemen who turned out for the pre-season practices. 

After deciding on the eleven finest, the team started from a slow start to 
surge through the Junior loop, and once it was rolling, it was the team to watch. 
With forwards like Bill Klesitz, Vic Corin, George Hayman, Murray Leibowitz, 
Merv Scott, and Sammie Atkinson, the squad beat its way into a playoff spot by 
placing in its own loop. 

Meeting Pharmacy "A" in the semi-finals, with such guards as Will Clark, 
Grant Parkinson, Eddie Allan, Ron Seawright and Norm Dobey, the group was 
able to chalk up a substantial win, the lights showing a victory of 53-25 at the 
end of the game. 

The team's next major opposition appeared to be P.H.E. The game was 
nip and tuck all the way with the whole team turning in smashing performances. 
However, P.H.E. was able to muster up a small lead in the dying minutes of the 
game and take it with a score of 34-29. 

This defeat knocked the Junior Skulemen out of the running, but never- 
theless their performance in the exhibition game with State Teachers' College 
in Buffalo showed them to have the spirit of a great basketball team. 



School III 

The S.P.S. Ill basketball squad started 
off the season in fine style. Under the 
able leadership of Coach Harry Wilson, 
the boys proved victorious in three of 
their first four games. Their good for- 
tune was short-lived however, and the 
next three games were an unbroken 
losing streak. 

Among the higher scorers for the 
team were Ross Austen, Bob Richard- 
son, Ed. LaFontaine, Walter Tarasick and 
Bill McCagherty. Other members add- 
ing to the scoring total were Jake Mc- 
Fadyen, Sid Blackwood, Mike Nagata, 
Lou Rubino and Ted Rootham. 



School IV 

THE S.P.S. Fourths were probably the 
tallest Junior Skuie Team ever to be 
entered in Major League competition. 
Neff, Service, Speed, Brown, Simpkin, 
Foster and Milne, ail men of six feet or 
more, held up the tall end of the team, 
while Kabayama and Kamioka were 
probably the shortest but the fastest two 
forwards in their group. The club as a 
whole showed very well, considering 
the lack of practice and long lay-offs; 
they were never beaten by more than 
three points.

Although the Fifths rounded out the 
season with a fifty percent average, win- 
ning three out of the six, their perform- 
ance for the year was much better than 
the record shows. 

All in all, S.P.S. V combined all 
around ability, fine team spirit, and solid 
sportsmanship, to make it a very enjoy- 
able experience for everyone concerned.

School V 

The Sixths got off to a very good start. Although they had never before 
played or practised as a unit, they managed a win over Institutional Manage- 
ment. In the next three games they did not fare so well; these were lost to 
U.C. IV, Vic IV and Institutional Management. 

The team was sparked all year by Parke, Miklas and Mattiussi. Gene 
Stepkawski put in a good job as Coach. Although they did not win any 
championship, the boys all had a good time, and did manage to win a few 
Reed Trophy points for S.P.S. 

Minor League Basketball 

HOW the mighty are fallen! Fourth Year Civils, pointing for their second 
straight minor cage championship, must have read their press notices 
too carefully. Going into the playoffs with an unbeaten string, they were 
knocked off by Pre-Dents, 48-36, a great disappointment to all. Their place, 
however, was taken by 3rd Mechanicals, a powerful team which, at the time 
of writing, is engaged in the finals, trying to retain the prize for S.P.S. 

Of the other twelve teams entered in the leagues, most did quite well, 
with five or six leading their leagues and almost all piling up very nice won- 
lost averages. Fourth Eng. Bus., 3rd Mech and Chem., 2nd Eng. Phys, and 
1st Eng. Bus. finished royally, but were eliminated in the playdowns. 

So the situation stands as 3rd Mechanicals carry the banner into the final 
games, probably against Pre-Dents. 


Where are the musclemen? 

This year there was only one entry from Skule. In '51, however, we are 
anticipating great things, when a couple of our boys from across the ocean will 
find a little more time for competition. 

fire you aware that in the past the Applied Science men were regarded as 
the big opposition in this sport of twirls, That day will soon be here again! 



Ed. Note: He's too bashful to mention it, but Jim was the sole entrant sport- 
ing Blue and Gold. He placed third in the meet — no mean trick consider- 
ing the prowess of the competition. Jim also helped with the cartwheels and 
handstands at those big Blue Football Games.

CU. a awuck i& 

IN the year 1889, at a time when 1000 volts was 
considered "high voltage," a number of 150 H.P. 
10500 volt transformers were built and installed 
by Dr. S. Z. De Ferranti in the Trafalgar Sguare 
substation at the London Electric Supply Corpora- 
tion Limited. The transformer illustrated above 
remained in operation for nearly forty years. 

Dr. Ferranti also pioneered in the art of metering 
beginning with the development of the Ferranti 
ampere-hour type mercury meter in 1884, and, in 
1885 supplied a number of alternating current 
meters to the Grosvenor Gallery, which was being 
prepared to supply the city of London with alter- 
nating current 

Benefitting by the wealth of experience gained in 
the 60-odd years since that time, the Canadian 
Branch, Ferranti Electric Limited, has continuously 
expanded its services to electrical utilities and 
industry at large, until "long-life and dependable 
service" in transformers, voltage regulators, watt- 
hour meters, etc. has become synonymous with 
the name Ferranti ! 

Shown here is one of the 5000 kv-a. 3-phase, 
60 cycle, 44000-2300 V. Ferranti transformers 
recently supplied to the Canada Cement Company.
